At the beginning of the academic year the Students’ Union will deliver a number of opportunities to attend initial training that is mandatory for all Course Reps.
It’s vital that you attend this session as it will equip you with the basic knowledge of the role, your responsibilities and duties. You’ll also get to meet your fellow Course Representatives with whom you’ll be working throughout the year.
At any stage during the year, including over summer, you are welcome to approach the Students’ Union should you need advice or guidance relating to your role or a problem that has arisen. Your Course Director is who you should first approach to solve an issue, but if you don’t feel this has been handled very well, or you need extra support, this is where the Students’ Union comes in.
