Training

All of our Class Representatives receive training from the Director of Education that is supported by the Centre for Academic, Professional and Organisational Development (CAPOD). They should watch a training video prior to the training. Our Postgraduate Representatives are trained by the PG Academic Convenor with support from CAPOD. All Class Reps, including returning ones, are required to attend the core training sessions.

The core training is supported by four expansion packs that focus on the following issues:

  • Library and learning resources
  • Careers and employability
  • Building a social community
  • Minute-taking

These trainings are mandatory for, respectively, Library Reps, Employability Reps, Social Reps, and Secretary Reps. Other class reps are welcome to attend these trainings for their personal development.
