Students' Unions Local

Monday 12-10-2015 - 10:28

Registration for Students' Unions Local is now open.

Students’ Unions Local are specially designed one day events created to meet the needs of officers and staff in students’ unions. It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up with colleagues in the movement, share best practice and make new contacts.

There will be workshops presented in five streams to make sure you get the most out of your day:
Senior Leaders 

With sessions planned on the new NUS strategic plan, the next steps on from the membership commission and key issues of legal compliance; this strand is specifically designed to meet the needs of key decision makers.  

Quality Students’ Unions

Kick-start your progress through the quality mark with dedicated advice and support on strategic planning, governance and democracy from our strategic support unit.


Hear how we are changing the world with the latest on three of our major campaigns: #CutTheCosts, Divest-invest, and a tailored electoral issues session specific to your nation.

Insight and Enterprise

With sessions covering the latest on the review of NSS and Unistats, how to get the most out of our insight team, and expert advice on how to place your purchasing performance into the national context; this strand is designed for those wanting to gain new insight and with a love of all things data!

Key Policy Issues

This session looks at three key policy issues facing the movement; how we can help close the BME attainment gap, responding to the area reviews facing FE and helping students have homes fit for study. 

In addition to the above workshops, there will be a sixty-minute slot after lunch for facilitated networking, followed by an afternoon plenary: 'Getting the most out of our movement'.  This could be your opportunity to showcase what your union has been doing so send an email to and tell us what’s been happening and we’ll do our best to include it on the day.
