Running a society is like running a small business and we believe this should be recognised.
Why do student Societies need this?
Societies across the UK are raising thousands of pounds each year – some with up to £100,000 turnover! New members are recruited, great events organised, and inspiring speakers invited to talk. The ESSA certification will be the official stamp of achievement and recognised by potential employers.
Why is the RBS ESSA important for students?
Youth unemployment figures have just hit 1 million. Young people need to show now more than ever that they are original, enterprising, commercially aware, and not just an exam-machine. Enterprise, innovation and entrepreneurship are hot topics for both the coalition government and UK employers.
University societies are spearheaded by enterprising students – students with the drive and ability to change the country and help an economy in desperate need of growth.
