Congratulations on successfully being elected for a committee position in this year’s Student Group Elections! We hope that you are excited for the year ahead and for all of the challenges and experiences that lie ahead of you.
To ensure that you are all fully equipped to hit the ground running when you assume your roles, we provide training to all committee members ahead of the new academic year.
As well as a name change (from Student Opportunities Training Conference), we’re shaking things up this year and offering two days of training rather than one.
Reflecting on student feedback from previous years, as well taking note of the types of questions Student Opportunities commonly receive in September, we recognise that the time between June and the beginning of the academic year (when most processes will be put into action) is too long.
As such, we’ve split training in two to reflect the immediate needs of committee members, taking into account the time of the year and what you realistically need to know at that moment. Here's the plan:
This training is mandatory and will guide you through necessary documentation and actions to be completed over the summer.
We will be delivering a range of sessions relevant to your role, focused on the practical skills and processes you’ll require to actively organise your group.
The date for this training will be announced closer to the time.
While we cannot wait to meet the rest of you in September, for now we’re focusing on the June training. We're asking all Presidents, Secretaries and Treasurers to please sign up to Student Group Training. Simply add the free ticket below to your basket and 'purchase' it, just as you would for any other ticket, product or membership.
The deadline for individuals to sign up is Friday 7 June at midday. If you miss the sign up you are still able to attend the day. This is for us to gauge how many people will be in the room and prepare resources accordingly.
To make registration throughout the day as quick and seamless as possible, we will be using card scanners to log your attendance so please bring your College ID card with you.
If you have any access requirements, please fill this section out within the 'sign up' process and we’ll ensure we support you to meet your goals for the day. We'll also be providing a room specifically for anyone to take some quite time throughout the day.
