NStEP Class Rep Training

The National Student Engagement Programme (NStEP) aims to train class reps nationwide to best prepare them for their important roles within Institutions. The purpose of the training is to

  • Develop students' understanding of the class rep role and describe the work involved in being a class rep.
  • Provide an introduction to the work in Ireland to develop student engagement.
  • Discuss the student learning experience and explore how class reps can use it to assist them  in their work as a class rep.
  • Develop some of the skills they will use as class rep.
  • Discuss what support is available to class reps.

The aims of the National Student Engagement Programme are 

  • To develop student capabilities to engage in quality enhancement and assurance activities at all levels of the higher education system.
  • To support institutions in developing processes and activities which support/facilitate the meaningful engagement of students.
  • To strengthen the value placed on student engagement across Ireland and develop tools and resources to support a common understanding and build effective practice.
  • To lay the foundations to develop work beyond the pilot phase to inform the implementation of a national student training programme and increase capacity to take work further

NStEP is underpinned by a new set of principles on student engagement developed by Higher Education Authority http://bit.ly/2bejWxO
