For detailed information about the new Student Rep mechanisms, including the specific actions you will need to take as a Programme Leader or Subject Lead, please download the staff handbook.
You will find a list of actions and deadlines for the full academic year in the table below. If your programme's start date is in January, or another time of the year, please do still promote the opportunity for students to become Course Reps with your cohort.

For both Course Rep and School Rep recruitment, there are a variety of resources available. Below you will find a set of standardised PowerPoint slides that specify the Rep vacancies within your school. Notes are included on each slide so you can use them for live recruitment in lectures, or as a stand-alone resource on Blackboard. In recognition that recruitment may be more challenging with COVID-19 restrictions, we have also created a video which can be used for digital recruitment.
