Societies Training Essentials

Office Holder training 

ENSA arranges training for Society Office Holders annually, and this year we will be holding a Team Napier residential training weekend for Sports and Societies at the Craigmore Centre near Aberfoyle over the weekend of the 6th-7th May 2017.

Two Office Holders from each society are invited to attend, and following your Society elections they can sign up at the link below. Sign-ups for training close on the 1st May 2017.

Sign-ups will close on the 1st May so you still have a couple of weeks to get sorted.

Sign up here:

Induction training covers a variety of information that will be useful to you in executing your Office Holder role, including:

  • ENSA’s structure and introduction to the VP Sports & Societies
  • Finances and funding
  • Society development and Office Holder roles
  • Events and trips planning
  • Social Media, Publicity and Marketing
  • Resources and facilities
  • Health & Safety
  • Equality & Diversity
  • Office Holder personal development
  • Freshers Fair

Data Protection training

Data Protection training is mandatory for all Office Holders who wish to gain access to their members' personal details online or to collect sign-ups at Freshers Fair.

The training can be accessed here:

You must take the test and pass it, and then send proof of this along with a signed Data Protection Declaration to ENSA, either in person in room B34 Merchiston, or via email.

Student Development Programme

All Society Office Holders are eligible to take part in the ENSA Student Development Programme which will give you access to a variety of skills training courses, as well as enable you to verify your Office Holder position on your University Higher Education Academic Report (HEAR).
