Elections: Workshops

Workshop

Time is ticking on for you to nominate yourself for the Spring-Term elections! Regardless of whether you’ve been ready to go from the start of the year; or are still unsure about putting yourself forward: we’ve developed a programme of informative sessions to help you prepare for your campaign.

Communications Workshop Monday 13th of February

Campaigning Workshop Tuesday 14th of February

Manifesto Workshop Wednesday 15th of February

Public Speaking & Self Care Workshop Thursday 16th of February

Website Workshop Friday 17th of February

There’s no need to book a place for these workshops and all are welcome. You don’t need to have a plan prepared, or know which position you want to run for: these workshops exist to help you make up your own mind on whether running for election is for you; as well as providing helpful information should you decide to do so.

Staff and officers will also be running additional sessions throughout the week beginning Monday the 13th of February specifically for students who are thinking of running for elections, but are as yet unsure. This is a great opportunity to talk to people involved in the elections (including departing officers who have previously been successfully elected) about their campaigns, election rules, and the specific duties of each elected role.

These ‘Interested in running for election?’ sessions will be on Monday the 13th, Tuesday the 14th, and Friday the 17th of February.

Once nominations close on Monday the 20th of February, there will be three workshops coming quickly afterwards (one of which is a mandatory briefing for candidates) that can help students meet other candidates, prepare their campaign, and create useful publicity materials.

Mandatory Briefing Monday 20th February

Candidate Training Day Tuesday 21st February

Banner-making Crafternoon. Wednesday 22nd February

 

So get involved, be part of representing students.
