Rep Training

Welcome Meeting

Your primary means of training will be the Student Rep Welcome Meeting which will take place the week you are elected.

This essential training will cover some of the key skills you need to undertake your role as a Student Rep. It will also give you a chance to meet the Rep Team, as well as meet other fellow Student Reps. Knowing other Reps will be really important throughout the year, as this way you can share common problems, ideas and examples of good practice. 

Online Training

You are also expected to complete core online training. This training complements what you will learn in the Welcome Meeting. Completing this training mandatory, and it must be done by the end of Autumn Term. It shouldn’t take you any longer than an hour and it has lots of useful infomration about the Student Rep Scheme. Once you’ve completed your online training, we will give you your Rep Hoody to say thank you! Email studentreps@sussexstudent.com to let us know you have completed your training, and to arrange a time to collect your hoody!
