This year’s all-Ireland higher education student officer training event took place in July at Maynooth Students’ Union.
Students’ union officers travelled from colleges all over Ireland to join together for a highly intensive week of training and specialist sessions that will set them up for the year ahead.
NUS-USI is thrilled that their northern members were well represented at this exciting event, with student officers from Stranmillis, St Mary’s, Ulster and Queen’s students’ unions all taking part.
Each had the opportunity to network with officers from other colleges and to develop skills that will see them through their year in office, and beyond. A returners’ stream was also introduced this year for students who had attended last year’s flagship event.
The 80 students that took part are looking forward to the final part of the training, SUT+, which is scheduled to take place in Queen’s University Belfast on 21-22 August.
SUT is a collaboration between USI, NUS and NUS-USI, and is an example of the trilateral agreement working at its best.
