If you missed it, the ENAS Award shortlist was announced last week.
We’re now happy to provide some background on each of the projects that have made the shortlist and will be presented at our Forum & Assembly in Nijmegen.
First up is University College Dublin and their project ‘Students helping Students’.
‘Students Helping Students’ at UCD Dublin integrates real-world learning and service provision for students by students in a university sport setting.
Partnership between the Physiotherapy unit and Sport Services gives students a structured Physiotherapy work placement in the Sport Centre, supervised by Physiotherapy staff.
They develop and deliver services in response to student needs, while gaining experiential learning. To date, initiatives include: supporting the Active Campus Europe programme; delivering classes; provision of sports massage, recovery and advice for athletes; first aid for UCD sport teams; engagement in health, exercise and wellness promotion for the university community.
You can find out ever more about UCD’s initiative at the Forum & Assembly when they present the project to our delegates, prior to the final vote.
Keep an eye out tomorrow and Thursday for our other two finalists.
