Help needed for our June Open Days

Message from Prof Bernie Morley, Deputy Vice-Chancellor & Provost

Dear colleagues,

We have two Open Days taking place on Thursday 15 and Friday 16 June 2017.

The Open Day planning team are looking for colleagues willing to help at Welcome Points and to work alongside Student Ambassadors at various locations across campus.

If you can offer to help or want to find out more please email Laura Rankin, or call x5985.

These events are ever more critical to our success at recruiting undergraduate students. The competition to attract the best students is more intense than ever and we need to ensure we pull out all the stops to convince prospective applicants to choose to apply to Bath.

Are you able to volunteer to help at our summer Open Days on Thursday 15 & Friday 16 June?

What our visitors (and those who influence them, parents, teachers) see and experience at an Open Day has a major impact on where they prefer to study.

All who enjoyed our Festival on 6 May will know how wonderful it is to see campus really buzzing and have seen how finding out more about what we do can really engage and inspire.

Welcoming visitors on Open Day is really rewarding and it is great to experience first-hand the enthusiasm of so many applicants to win a place at Bath. Your help and support would be appreciated.

Reimbursement

Academic staff will be given credit under their department’s Workload Allocation Model for attending. Any preparation time should be undertaken prior to the day. Alternatively, they will be granted time off in lieu for the hours worked.

Professional Services Staff on grades 1-9 who are not contracted / rostered to work on 15 and/or 16 June will be granted time off in lieu for the hours worked at a rate of time and a half for the hours worked provided that the hours worked that week exceed their contracted hours (FTE) for that week.

Where it is not possible to grant staff on grades 1-5 who are not contracted / rostered to work on 15 and/or 16 June time off in lieu, they will be paid at time and a half for the hours worked, provided that the hours worked that week exceed contracted hours (FTE) for that week.

Time off in lieu should normally be taken within one month of being accrued. However, as an exception, any time off in lieu for attending the Open Day can be taken up to September 2017.

Parking

The roads leading up to campus will be incredibly busy on the day. Visitor cars will be directed to East, South and West car parks as normal where they can park or be directed on to over flow car parks on the grass fields.

For those staff arriving later in the day who may struggle to find space to park, Security Services have allocated K car park for you to use. K car park is located to the rear of Brendon Court.

This car park will not be staffed and there is no need to use a special pass. Spaces in this car park will be on a first come first served basis.
