Congratulations on being elected into your committee role(s), you have taken the first step in being valuable student leaders who will set the direction for your student group(s) over the next 12 months.
We hope that you are excited for the year ahead, relish this opportunity and enjoy your time, as you will learn so much.
Over this three week period, we will be giving you the information you need to get through the summer as a new committee and prepare for the beginning of term one.
This year, we have changed things up in relation to group training with all sessions being delivered digitally over Zoom. In the current climate of uncertainty, we recognise there is still a lot of information that is not known yet so we will make sure to outline key information to kick-start your committee journey.
We will be holding each session twice over the three weeks, hopefully meaning that more of you can attend at a flexible time! All is outlined below, along with the target audience of each session. Make sure you engage, take notes, and don’t be afraid to ask us anything! Enjoy!
This training is mandatory for presidents, secretaries, and treasurers, and will guide you through necessary documentation and actions to be completed over the summer.
‘How to…’ sessions including organising events, running elections, finance, and more! This training will be open to all committee members to attend sessions relevant to their role/group.
To make this more accessible, we will run sessions across a number of dates.
To get the Zoom link for each session, and to help give us a heads up on numbers, please sign up to Student Group Training using the link below.
