Our Course Rep training and support package has been tailored to suit the needs of new and returning Course Reps. The first part of this training will occur online, and the link will be sent to Course Reps when they register. In addition to this, Course Reps will be invited to attend our Course Rep Workshops, where they will ge the chance to meet other Course Reps, to have a number of informative and engaging round table discussions on how they can create change and improve their academic experience. Advanced workshops are also offered throughout the academic year. For 2018/19 these will include: Being effective at Board of Study meetings, Know Your Rights and The Importance of Using Data and Evidence; information regarding the focuses of these workshops is circulated each year. All information about our training and support can be found here.
As a University member of staff it would be really helpful, if you could you pass on all information regarding training, to your elected or selected Course Reps. It is essential that Course Reps take up the training offered by the Students’ Union. Not only will this introduce them to the Union and help them to understand their role, but will aid them for the rest of the year.
