Each student category is judged at four levels: Institutional, Regional, National and Overall Student Employee of the Year
Awards will be given in these categories for both the On Campus and Off Campus divisions:
Plus we have an exclusive NASES members only category in the On Campus division:
This category allows student employment service staff to recognise the students that work for them either as an agency temp or administrator.
This means that there are now seven student awards!
We also recognise employer excellence with the Student Employer of the Year award, but we will award in both the On and Off Campus divisions:
This means that there are now two employer awards!
NASES member universities and colleges around the country will receive anonymised nomination forms representing each student or employer entered into the competition from their institution. Representatives from institutional job shops or careers services will then assemble their team of three judges (these will be picked from a variety of sectors including academics, business representatives, careers specialists representatives from Endsleigh Insurance Ltd. and employers). The judges then compare all entries in a particular category and then decide together which nomination they will submit to regional judging. Institutional winners will receive a certificate and be entered to the next stage of the competition.
The competition is divided into seven regions:
The NASES regional representative from each of these regions will gather together a team of three judges (at this stage we'll be adding some of our SEOTY alumni to our judging panels) and they will again be tasked with selecting the best entry in each category for their region. These nominations will be submitted to the National competition.
The judging team will be made up of senior staff from our sponsors, experienced job shop staff, SEOTY Alumni, and a NASES head judge who will meet and spend a day selecting our National winners. This team will take time to pore over the (still anonymous) nominations received from each region. They then meet to select a single winner in each category. From those winners who will all receive a certificate, trophy, £100 cheque and an invitation to the SEOTY awards celebration in July, an overall winner will be chosen to be our next National Student Employee of the Year to join our illustrious list of alumni.
