Programme reps are an integral part of ENSA and our mission to represent student interests and needs to the University. As valued volunteers, ENSA aims to train all our reps to the required standard, supporting you to succeed in your role.
Programme Rep Pathway
Pathway Stages Explained
When you are first recruited as a Programme Rep, you will be invited to an induction session where staff will introduce you to your role and teach you the skills you need to succeed.
Student Staff Liaison Committees (SSLCs) are meetings between academic staff and Programme Reps, and give Reps a chance to bring up issues their fellow students have raised, ask questions about decision making, and gain insight into how courses are run. SSLCs should be held twice per Trimester.
There are a number of workshops or courses that we offer which will help you develop your skills in certain areas. These workshops are organised around 8 key skill areas and are there for your personal and professional development.

Sign up for workshops or courses on the Training page in the Student Development Programme drop-down menu at the top of the page.
Rep Drop-Ins rop-Ins will be held on each campus at least once per Trimester and are a chance for all Programme Reps to come together to discuss relevant matters, meet Campus Officers, and get peer support and advice from ENSA.
Reflective practice simply means thinking about your actions and experiences to draw unconscious thoughts and feelings into the open. You should use the VBase logging tool to record the skills you develop while performing your role, with practical examples to illustrate this.
Read our guide to Reflective Practice here. You can download anything you add to your VBase record for use in the future when writing a C.V. or preparing for a job interview. Download your Volunteer Record here.
