sparqs' online Introductory Course Rep Training for 2020-21 is still open to book!

Bookings are still open for sparqs Course Rep Training during 2020-21.

As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, this year's training has been developed in an online format, and is in two parts. The first is a self-study online module, which reps will access via their institution's VLE, and the second part is webinar-based training, delivered by sparqs Associate Trainers via Zoom.

The training is aimed at course reps who have not attended rep training before. It aims to develop confidence in their role, as being a course rep for the first time can be a daunting prospect.

Please note that the online materials are for our Introductory Course Rep Training only. If you would like to book training for apprentices, students with supported education needs or senior phase school pupils at college, please contact Ali McDade, Communications Co-ordinator - ali.mcdade@sparqs.ac.uk. As usual, our materials for postgraduate students and ESOL students, and introductory materials translated into the Gaelic language, are available for institutions to deliver in-house.

All the information you need is on our main CRT webpagePlease read the new booking guidance before arranging your sessions and requesting dates, as the process for booking sessions, registration of reps, and delivery of the training itself, have all changed.

Our team of Associate Trainers were all trained in August, equipping them with the skills and knowledge necessary to fulfil their role.  The 2020-21 trainers have a wealth of experience from their studies and course rep activity within their institutions.  Read our article introducing the AT team and linking to their biographies.  


If you have any questions about the Course Rep Training booking process, or how we can support you to deliver training within your institution, please get in touch with Ali McDade, Communications Co-ordinator, on 07585 969882 or email ali.mcdade@sparqs.ac.uk.

Any questions about the content of the training should go to Justin Walker, Development Consultant, on 07880 192722 or email justin.walker@sparqs.ac.uk.
