Supporting Student Reps

There are lots of ways you can support student reps:

  • Encourage them to attend training sessions and to engage with the support available from the Students’ Union and their faculty.
  • Make sure that they can contact all students on their course.
  • Provide them with Blackboard facilities or time within lectures/seminars to help them gather feedback from students.
  • Help them to promote themselves.
  • If possible, provide meeting space if they want to meet with students or with other reps.
  • Offer them guidance and support e.g. preparing for and attending committee meetings.
  • Try to make your committee meetings inclusive and supportive¬†¬† environments for students.
  • Promote the rep system and the value of student representation to staff and students.
