Developing representation and partnership

Effective representation and partnership are crucial to good student engagement in quality, and the resources in this section of our website outline how we contribute to building this.

We provide support to institutions and students’ associations on the strategic development of partnership, through Student Partnership Agreements, the use of the Student Engagement Framework for Scotland and our Student Engagement Analysis Workshop.

We also support the development of effective systems for academic representation, through our support for course and departmental representation, as well as providing advice on the accreditation and recognition of academic reps.

Inclusion of all students is of course a key element of representation and partnership, and we have developed guidance on engaging postgraduate and online and distance learning students, among many other important dimensions of equality and diversity. We also support representation and partnership approaches to respond to key institutional and sectoral challenges, such as learner outcomes in colleges.
