Whilst it might be a reward in itself to be able not only to make your experience at University better but also that of your friends and other classmates, being a Programme Rep will give you so much more. You have the opportunity to up your skills through training as well as get a certificate at the end of the academic year.
To get your certificate, please see the following criteria:
If you are a September starter, then you need attend at least 6 Programme Rep Events (related to student Engagement, Representing peers and investing in personal development to effectively represent others) throughout the year to be eligible for a ‘Programme Rep Award’.
If you are a February starter, then you need attend at least 4 Programme Rep Events (related to student Engagement, Representing peers and investing in personal development to effectively represent others) throughout the year to be eligible for a ‘Programme Rep Award’.
The events that qualify are: Programme Rep Trainings, School Forums, Programme Reps Conference, the SU Annual General Meeting and Programme Committee. More events will be added over the academic year and will be advertised to you by email.
You must have the organiser of each of these events sign off on your attendance on page 28 of the programme reps handbook. You will also need to complete the end of term 1 report (page 25) and the end of year report (page 26) reflecting on your achievements of the term and the skills you acquired.
If you are a Distance Learner, then you need to complete the online reps training available on Moodle in the programme reps module, complete the end of term report as mentioned above and you will need to ask your programme leader to fill out a reference form. For a reference form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
