Course Rep Training Co-ordinators' Network Meeting


This event brought together co-ordinators of Course Rep Training in universities and colleges for networking, training and development. 

The day focused on developing Institutional Associate Trainer (IAT) teams to deliver Course Rep Training. We explored the background and benefits of IAT schemes, and heard from City of Glasgow College’s 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.
