We believe that a good understanding of the role and responsibilities of Course Rep will help you develop the confidence necessary to communicate with students and University staff and will empower you to carry out tasks successfully. The induction training is mandatory for new course reps or returning reps who have not previously attended.
The aim of the training is to help you understand your role better, gain confidence to attend Board of Studies meetings, familiarise with LJMU and JMSU staff structure, and give you an idea of what you can hope to achieve throughout the year. We will also give you tips on how to promote yourself among your peers, how to collect feedback (good and bad!) and give you guidance on what to do if you want to make positive change. The training is also a great opportunity to meet fellow Course Reps!
Please sign up to your induction training:
We are looking forward to (virtually) meeting you! Despite we are online, you can still bring your coffee or tea! If you need to get in touch with us beforehand or you have accessibility requirements, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Additional Training Opportunities
Throughout the year we will host additional training sessions to help you strengthen your skills, confidence and knowledge as a student leader.
So feel free to sign up for the sessions you are interested in:
All sessions will be student-led and there will be a relevant member of staff or student to facilitate discussion. Once you attended the session, you can put it on Linkedin/your CV. If you are a rep, you can log in in your rep handbook. More info about dates and time coming soon!
Don’t see a session you are looking for/might be interested in? Get in touch with us, and we can see what we can do!
Returning Reps Workshop
If you are one of our fantastic returning reps, you may want to attend one of our 'Welcome Back' sessions. In the session you can say hi to your VP Academic Quality, meet relevant JMSU staff members, and get to know other course reps. We will guide you through our new website, new tools you can use to collect feedback and communicate with fellow students and staff, and plan this new - but somehow different- academic year!
Please, sign up to your Returning Reps Workshop:
We are looking forward to (virtually) meeting you! Feel free to bring your coffee-cake-tea along during our session!
