ENSA Student Trustees are selected to serve alongside external volunteers and our sabbatical officers as members of the ENSA Trustee Board, which governs how ENSA runs.
ENSA Student Trustee Pathway
Pathway Stages Explained
When you are first recruited as an ENSA Champion, you will be invited to an induction session where staff will introduce you to your role and teach you the skills you need to succeed.
This is the main part of your role and to complete the pathway you must put yourself forward to volunteer at a minimum of two events during the academic year. We will monitor attendance at events, but there should be plenty of opportunities to volunteer.
There are a number of workshops or courses that we offer which will help you develop your skills in certain areas. These workshops are organised around 8 key skill areas and are there for your personal and professional development.

Sign up for workshops or courses on the Training page in the Student Development Programme drop-down menu at the top of the page.
Reflective practice simply means thinking about your actions and experiences to draw unconscious thoughts and feelings into the open. You should use the VBase logging tool to record the skills you develop while performing your role, with practical examples to illustrate this.
Read our guide to Reflective Practice here. You can download anything you add to your VBase record for use in the future when writing a C.V. or preparing for a job interview. Download your Volunteer Record here.
