Course Rep Training

Over the years we have developed and delivered a number of different training products for course reps in institutions within Scotland. These have been designed to enable students to fully engage with quality enhancement processes.  While a number of institutions deliver their Introductory CRT via their own IAT schemes or other in-house systems, our wider range of products and materials may still be of interest.

Our Course Rep Training products are outlined below, some of which are available for delivery by sparqs Associate Trainers, and some of which are designed for institutions to deliver themselves, with support from sparqs if required.  Further details and training materials can be accessed via the links below.


Training available for delivery by sparqs

The 2019-20 booking form for the above products is accessible below, along with booking guidance, which should be read before requesting dates. 

While sparqs offers delivery of the training for students with supported education needs, the full materials are available for download if institutions wish to deliver it in-house.


Materials available for institutional delivery

While the three products above are designed for institutions to download materials and deliver the training in-house, sparqs are happy to provide support where required, e.g. helping staff to deliver initial sessions, set up processes, adapt materials, etc.
