Requirements: Enthusiasm and an interest in improving the student experience!
This opportunity is being posted to bring to your attention that TU Dublin courses are currently recruiting class reps who must be elected by their fellow class mates.
By applying for this TU Dublin Class Rep opportunity through www.studentvolunteer.ie you are expressing an interest in finding out more. A member of the Academic Affairs & Welfare team in the Students' Union will be in touch with more information via email following your application here.
The Class Rep is the elected representative of the students in their class. They are the spokesperson who represents students’ views to TU Dublin and with the Students' Union. They are a problem-solver who raises issues and finds solutions to any day to day issues in partnership with the academic team on the programme.
Examples of what Reps deal with include queries about timetables, exams, and continuous assessment, feedback on module delivery, improvements to the VLE (Virtual Learning Environment), or any course-related matter that the class wants to raise.
Class Reps are members of their Programme Committee which is a core part of the university's quality assurance framework.
Class Reps also attend their local Class Rep Meetings organised by the Students Union. This is where they network with other Reps, get updates on Union campaigns as well as raise issues for discussion e.g. how to improve the Library Services or fundraising for RAG week.
Training is provided to all Reps by the Students' Union in partnership with the university and we also offer training from NStEP - The National Student Engagement Programme https://studentengagement.ie/
