Meet our Associate Trainer team for 2022-23

We are delighted to introduce our excellent team of student Associate Trainers (ATs) for the coming academic year. The team includes 10 newly-recruited trainers and 6 returners from previous years, including one trainer who is returning for her sixth year as an AT!

The team will begin delivering Introductory Course Rep Training (part two) from week beginning 19th September 2022 onwards. Bookings are now open, as detailed in our CRT news article, which outlines the changes to the training and the process for the coming year.
