About this event

NStEP's Representing Diversity training builds on the skills developed in Introductory Class Rep Training by exploring tools and resources to help you effectively represent your diverse classmates and empower fellow students from all backgrounds and lived experiences to get involved in decision-making. We believe that class reps have a crucial role in ensuring that higher education is an inclusive and welcoming place, where every voice is heard and every student can become involved in shaping their learning experience.

This training will help you to:

• Recognise how to represent your diverse peer group

• Apply tools, resources and key concepts to your role as a Class Rep to represent your diverse peer group effectively.

• Identify and express the importance of diversity within student engagement practices

• Understand the need to empower students from diverse backgrounds through your work as a Class Rep.
