CRT Co-ordinators' Network meeting: 17th February 2016

Our most recent network meeting for co-ordinators of Course Rep Training took place on Wednesday 17th February 2016

Our first event of the academic year took place in November 2015, focused on the ongoing training and development of course reps. Coming after the bulk of introductory training had been delivered around the sector, the day allowed for reflection on specific areas of skills and knowledge that course reps might require further training in. Practice was presented from the University of the West of Scotland and Forth Valley College, and sector-specific workshops were held on training course reps in university Enhancement Themes and the College Student Satisfaction and Engagement Survey.

The February meeting focused on developing Institutional Associate Trainer (IAT) teams to deliver Course Rep Training in universities and colleges. The day explored the background and benefits of IAT schemes, and heard from City of Glasgow College about their experience of running such a programme. There was also an opportunity for those interested in creating or developing a team to look in depth at the different steps that could be taken, the requirements, and the extensive support available from sparqs.
