Will I receive training?

Yes, and it will be delivered online. Elected course reps will complete it in their own time within a one-week window from the announcement of the election results. There are three training modules, and it should take you an hour to complete all three. You will have access to the training modules via Moodle, and you will also be added to a school-level Teams channel so you can talk with other course reps in your school, and with your school rep.
