Trustee Induction Training

Each year students’ unions welcome hundreds of new trustees to their boards, some of which will only be in post for a single year. It is therefore essential that new trustees are brought up to speed very quickly, and Coole Insight is here to help you get to grips with the basics. Using the Nolan Principles as a guide, we provide different training packages ranging from single workshops, one-day, and residential training programmes.

SU Staff 360 Reviews

In addition to our elected student officer 360 appraisal, we offer a thorough review process for students’ union staff members that considers how they adapt to working in a student-led environment. The appraisal covers a series of core competencies and provides an excellent platform for self-reflection and improvement of these individuals.

In house elected officer training

Being a full-time paid student officer is one of the most unique jobs in the world, and it is genuinely down to the individual as to how much they will take from their 1–2-year experience.

We also introduce elected officers into the role and function of students’ unions, and their elected role within these amazing organisations.
