Dear all Common Awards students,

As you may be aware, the Common Awards Management Board provides oversight of the Common Awards programmes.  The Board meets three times each year, with two meetings in Durham and one in London.  At present, the Board includes representatives from Durham University, Ministry Division (including Theological Education Institutions [TEIs]), and one student representative.  You can find out more about the Management Board on Durham’s Common Awards website.

In response to feedback, the Common Awards Management Board has agreed to increase the student representation on the Board to two student representatives.  The Common Awards team at Durham University will be facilitating the election process.

Your voice is important!

~ Are you interested in being one of the Common Awards student representatives?

~ Would you like to have a say in the ongoing monitoring and development of the Common Awards on a national level?

~ Would you like to represent your fellow students and contribute to Common Awards decision-making and policy development?

If so, please consider standing for election!

To stand for election, please complete the attached form and return it to by 30th September 2016.   We intend to publish candidate information in early October so that Common Awards students can vote for their student representatives.

Please note that we will reimburse travel and subsistence costs for student representatives, and we will provide advice and support to the representatives throughout the year.

If you have any questions about the position, or the process, please contact Elena Gorman, Quality Assurance Manager (

We look forward to hearing from you!
