Resources for Reps

Resources for UWS Student Reps!

Hello and welcome to our collection of resources to help reps! We'll add to this as reps get elected and we go through the year. 

Your main source of information and communication with other reps throughout the year will be the Student Rep Teams group where you can talk to other reps, keep up to date on all things Rep related and create a community of Reps to support each other.

Rep training

You will be automatically enrolled onto the Rep Training module on microsoft teams and you will receive an email once this is done, please keep a look out for this. Once you access this module please read the information and instructions carefully.  If you have any trouble accessing it, please email who will help you.

Once you have completed the first part of the training you will be able to sign up to a live session. 

Developed with a team of experts at sparqs (Student Partnerships in Quality Scotland) the training provides an introduction to the role of course rep and is designed to help you perform that role well.

There are two parts to training.

Part one

An online study module, in which you can learn the core material independently (you'll be enrolled onto this upon election).

Part two

An in-person workshop facilitated by the Union's Representation Team to put what you learn from the online module into practice. Once you've completed part one, you can register for part two (look out for the link at the end of the part one quiz).

This year we have made lots of changes to the training and are encouraging all reps, including reps who've undertaken training in previous years, to do it again.

If you have any questions about the training, please get in touch with a member of the Union Rep Team via
