On Wednesday 12 May our Student Opportunities team ran a training session for over 130 committee members and a representative forum with 80 attendees. The sessions were the first opportunity for new committee members to engage with Student Opportunities, and the fantastic turnout is a testament to the hard work that the whole team has put in engaging and supporting committee members through a really challenging set of circumstances.
Our Student Opps team have been working incredibly hard behind the scenes to review and streamline processes and content to present to student groups ready for the summer planning period. This includes a new risk assessment template and comprehensive guidance, a new budgeting and funding process, and updates to the committee hub.
This is the first time that the team has delivered pre-summer training in this way.
If you attended the committee training session mentioned above, we'd like to thank you for joining us in preparing for the year ahead. We're so proud of all our groups and societies who have worked incredibly hard over the last year - you're all amazing!
The Student Opportunities Team are here to support you with your clubs, societies, volunteering groups, fundraising ideas and green projects. Each staff member specialised in a different department, so you can get assistance tailored to your needs. Get in contact at firstname.lastname@example.org.
