Part 2 sessions.

Treasurer Training - This session will provide all treasurers with a detailed understanding of their responsibilities and the processes involved with student group finances. This includes how the different accounts work, how you can spend money using expense claims, invoices and purchase requests, and how money can be paid into your group account. (Treasurers)

Mental Health Awareness Training - This session aims to reduce the stigma around mental health, empowering students to create open discussions and a more inclusive environment for people to be able to talk about their own mental health experiences. We’ll talk about how prevalent mental health is in universities, symptoms you may spot in your student group, some useful signposting resources, and what you can do in your role. Please note, this session will not be recorded. (Welfare-related roles)

Societies & Events - This session will cover the key information that will enable your group to operate in Term One. This includes the processes involved in putting on events, what guidelines will need to be followed, how to complete a risk assessment, and an overview of what space is available to use (and how you can access it throughout the term). We will also discuss other admin tasks that will be useful to know and what to expect during the first few weeks. (Society Presidents, Secretaries, and event-related roles)

Sports Clubs & Return to Play - This session will cover an update on the ‘Return to Training’ and ‘Return to Competition’ processes which have been ongoing for clubs throughout the summer, including completing a risk assessment and how facility access will work for you and your new members in September. We will also discuss any admin tasks which will be useful for you including event proposal forms, coaching forms, and kit orders. (Sports Club Presidents and Captains)

Q&A Drop-In - Come along and ask any questions that you’ve been thinking about over the week. (Any committee role)
