Active Staff Champions

Annual renewal of membership! Your chance to be involved in a game-changing group.

Team Derby's sport and fitness offer is for both staff and students and we regularly conduct consultations with our students to ensure a clear and informed understanding of our student population and their requirements. Team Derby think it’s equally important to mirror this opportunity for staff to make sure our offer reflects the needs of our University colleagues too. We run a “Active Staff Champions” programme and nearly have representatives from every University Department or College.

An induction, training and free t-shirt will be provided to each champion!

In return we ask for Champions to actively promote Team Derby, plan activities for their department and feedback to us at the termly meetings.

Sound like something you want to be involved in?

Each year the membership of the group is up for renewal and we recruit new champions to represent their department. From August 2017 each department can have a Lead Champion and an Assistant Champion to ensure departmental representation at as many meeting as possible. Any individual who fails to attend two consecutives meeting or three meetings throughout the year without adequate apologies, shall have deemed to have terminated their membership of the group and be asked to find a replacement.

Therefore we would like to take this opportunity to confirm who will be your Active Staff Champion for 2017/18. Current champions are welcome to stand again but would recommend that you discuss this with your line manager and colleagues to make this an open process.

Please can you confirm who will be representing your department by 31st August by filling in the below:

•Lead Active Staff Champion name:

•Deputy Active Staff Champion name:
