Get Involved as a Class Rep

Here you will find all the ways our Class Reps can get involved and feedback this year, including information about; Class Rep Meetings, upcoming events/campaigns, student surveys and My Voice Topics.

Visit the drop down below to find out more about how the team check-in with our Class Reps.

This area will also house networking details and information for you to feedback to your classmates. It is important that you check back into this section on a regular basis, new events, tasks and activities will be posted for you here and we wouldn't want you to miss out.
 

Class Rep Networking is a fantastic space for you to meet with your peers, share your college experiences and work together to improve the student experience here at City.

Our First round of Networking Sessions are due to take place in November and there will be one for each Faculty. These will be facilitated through zoom by your Student Engagement Officer and Faculty Reps. Check back nearer the time for information on how to sign up.

Your opinion matters and helps to shape the student experience here at City of Glasgow College. As a Class Rep, your role is to encourage your classmates to complete student surveys and attend Focus Group sessions, alongside engaging with them yourself. By supporting as many students as possible to engage with these feedback systems, Class Reps can actively contribute to the gathering of evidence that will lead to positive change in the College.

You can click here to view live student surveys and focus groups. We will also forward on Class Reps key feedback links throughout the year via email and within the Class Rep Forum.

At the end of each block we look to check in with all of our Class Reps, making sure to celebrate what they have achieved so far and offering support if needed. Our Check-Ins take the form of a simple online form where you will be asked to reflect on what changes you have achieved for your class and if you need any further assistance from the team.

Our Check-Ins will be shared via email and within the Class Rep Forum. Remember if you need support prior to Check In you can email us at citysa@cityofglasgowcollege.ac.uk

Our Final Class Rep networking session of the year is called our BIG Ideas Meeting and typically takes place in May, acting as CitySA’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).

The different between this and previous Networking is that it enables students to set the priorities for their elected representatives for the year ahead. Students are encouraged to submit Big Ideas on what the SA should be working on or new ways the SA should operate based on their experiences this year. These will be turned into motions for all students to vote on and any that secure enough votes will be included in the SAs’ work for next year.

The BIG Ideas meeting is open to all students but Class Reps are expected to attend as part of their role as well as encourage their class mates to engage. More information on the BIG Ideas Meeting, including how to submit ideas, will be released nearer the time so as always keep an eye out for CitySA emails and posts in the Class Rep Forum.

The expectation of the Class Rep Role is to support class mates in offering learning and teaching feedback to their courses. However, we know that more often or not Reps will be sought out for wider support such as questions regarding counselling, student finance and much more.

Class Reps can refer to the College’s Signposting Guide to direct classmates’ queries to the correct college department. For quick navigation, press Crtl+F on your keyboard to bring up the find function and search for the subject of your query.

Doing so, ensures reps don’t become overwhelmed by taking on more than their remit entails and that students access the dedicated support provided for them by the college. As always, if you are struggling to use the guide or require additional help contact citysa@cityofglasgowcollege.ac.uk
