Lead and Change: First Years

This flagship three-day training event is specifically for first year officers who are new to the role. Covering a wide range of topics such as essential leadership skills, understanding power and privilege including the system of oppression and effective and inclusive coaching skills, will culminate in your ability to create the change you want to see in your union.


What is different this year?

We have been consulting with various Students' Union since the beginning of 2019 to work on feedback from the previous couple of years, to look at what we can do to further enhance the Officer experience at Lead and Change.

We will be communicating out shortly the impact of this consultation, and the tweaks we will be making as a result.


Who should attend:

All first year Student Officers; including Presidents, Welfare, Education, Activities, Engagement etc.
