We are also available to facilitate away days and planning sessions.
We also deliver Lead and Change training for student leaders and campaigners in Colleges on behalf of the National Union of Students (NUS) and Learner Voice training for staff through the Association of Colleges (AoC).

The types of packages we could provide include:
Officer support – a half termly or termly day with officers to support them with campaigns, projects and events. It could also include some training depending on the needs of those officers. This is a great option for those Union’s with limited resources and limited staff support.
Learner voice development – a tailored package of three days upwards focusing on developing representation structures and strategy.
Students’ Union development – from those setting up a Students’ Union for the first time to those more established unions looking to develop further we can offer support with structures, strategy, Charity Commission registration and policy and procedure development.
For more information about any of these options or to discuss tailoring something specifically for your Union or College, we’d love to hear from you.
