NStEP’s new advanced training is designed to equip returning reps with strategies and tools to support them in the role.

About this event

Advanced Class Rep Training is designed for returning or experienced reps who have previously completed NStEP’s Introductory Class Rep Training. This module was developed by four of NStEP’s student trainers who draw from their own broad experiences of student engagement in a variety of contexts.

Advanced Class Rep Training covers the following key areas:

  • Understanding and navigating challenging interactions, challenging environments, and challenging situations.
  • Apply reframing techniques and empathy to overcome challenges.
  • Using the LAPSS strategy to incorporate effective Leadership, Approaches, Partnerships, and Succession Strategies into the rep role.
  • A variety of tools and resources to support class reps in the above areas.

Advanced training is delivered as ‘open sessions’, meaning any rep from one of NStEP’s participating institutions can sign-up for this training. This also provides participants with the opportunity to network and share experiences with reps from other institutions.
