committee training

committee training - investing in you

Being a student group committee member is a great way to equip yourself with personal development skills, make friends, and enhance how you appear to employers. To ensure you get the most out of your time as committee member, we offer training sessions and resources that will help you understand what is expected from your role, best practices you should undertake and how to verbalise the skills you have gained from your experience as a committee member. 

The table below indicates which training session committee members should undertake and links to training slides.
