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.

This area will also house meeting summaries 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 Meetings are 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 Class Rep Meetings is due to take place in December and will be facilitated through zoom. There will be four themed topic areas for Class Reps to feedback on their experiences and you are welcome to engage with as many of the topics as you like.

More details will be revealed closer to the time, including topic themes, meeting agendas, meeting times/days and zoom links.

In addition to feeding back at Class Rep Meetings you can also get involved with wider SA initiatives through our Project Teams.

Project team meetings are where the hard work in planning events and campaigns in the Students’ Association happens. Each Project team has a specific remit and are led by one member of the Presidential team. Students can participate in as many of the meetings as they would like if they are passionate about one of the specific issues or if they are representing the views of their class on a particular topic.

Engagement with Project Teams is entirely optional to Class Reps but if you’d like to come along please let us know at citysa@cityofglasgowcollegecollege.ac.uk

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 these surveys alongside engaging with them yourself. By supporting as many students as possible to engage with these questionnaires, Class Reps can actively contribute to the gathering of evidence that will lead to positive change in the College.

There are currently no College wide surveys live at the moment however you can access partner and local surveys click here on our website.

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.

Class Rep Check In Summary

 

Our Final Class Rep Meeting 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 Class Rep Meetings as 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.

Whilst we ask Class Reps to work locally with their lecturing teams to resolve challenges and make improvements to your classes experience, we know that sometimes you may need further support in making this happen. As you can see, we have multiple systems in place to ensure that Class Reps can access the support they need whenever they need it, which includes; Class Rep FAQs, Class Rep Forums and Class Rep Check-Ins.

What we don’t recommend is waiting for a meeting, survey, etc. to flag up that you need help as most requests for improvement can be time sensitive. Instead get in touch as soon as possible by contacting, your Representatives and Key Contacts as shown on our make an appointment to speak to the team, where your query will be sent on to the right person.
