Our Introductory Course Rep Training materials for 2019-20 are available below. The training is aimed at newly elected course reps who have not attended training before. It aims to develop confidence in their role, as being a course rep for the first time can be a daunting prospect.
The training is designed to be delivered to between 12-25 delegates per session. It lasts 2 hours and is split into two parts. The first looks at the role of the course rep and what the Student Learning Experience is, while the second half takes the rep through the process they would go through as a rep. It covers:
- Gathering student opinion.
- Providing effective feedback.
- Developing solutions to issues.
- How to get your problem fixed.
- Meeting skills.
- Closing the feedback loop.

The 4 institutions who are taking part in the pilot are City of Glasgow College, Fife College, Glasgow School of Art and the University of the West of Scotland.
