Sabbatical Officer Nominations
As a Course Rep, this is the time where you have the opportunity to be recognised for your work with Students, Staff members and the Students Union. It also gives you the opportunity to recognise other Course Reps for the great work they have done.
This year we have four awards categories seen below. Full criteria for each award can be found by clicking on each Award!
Course reps work in partnership with the University and the Student’s Union to make sure that the teaching and learning experience at Bangor is representative of all student opinion. The Student Choice Award is nominated by students in recognition of a course reps ability to work with their fellow students to ensure they have a constant voice in feedback and development to improve academic experience.
As a course rep in your school, it is really important to work in partnership with both staff and students to ensure a constant student perspective when looking to improve lectures, modules and courses. To recognise this collaboration, Staff members are given the opportunity to nominate students for this award. The winner of the Staff Choice award will have stood out for their engagement with staff, been proactive in sourcing student opinion or really helped to improve the experience of your students.
This Course Rep is able to show high involvement over the past year as a Course Rep, attending and contributing University meetings, lobbying for change and feeding back into the Students’ Union via Lydia or Rebecca. This pro-active nature ensures vital involvement in the course rep scheme in order to make necessary or desired changes to their programme, department or the student experience of their colleagues. This Course Rep is able to show how their actions have had a positive and tangible effect on the lives of their fellow students and/or the Students' Union
Course reps must be able to demonstrate that they have worked with their fellow students to ensure there has been a regular dialogue for feedback in order to generate positive change in their school. The panel is looking for evidence that the course rep has shown initiative and dedication to their role, good communication with reps and staff and new and innovative ideas to gain feedback that contributes towards developments within the school and/or curriculum. This is a self nominated award, with a £500 cash prize to be won
