Training

We offer School Council training, delivered by trainers who are generally ex-teachers with a wealth of Pupil Voice experience.

If your School Council is newly formed, with a Link Teacher who is relatively new to Student Voice then you can start with the basics. We can take you through the whole process from Writing an Agenda through Meeting Skills to Profile Raising.

If you have an established School Council, are you sure that they are operating effectively? Do your students know how to observe lessons and provide feedback? Do they have Mediation skills? Would you like to receive practical ideas, guidance and resources to put your Council at the centre of effective Student Voice?

Some comments from pupils who have recently received training from one of our Licenced Trainers, at their school:-

'I believe the aim of the training was to trigger a change in the way the school council handles issues. It helped us to find a more efficient way of making important changes and having an impact on school life. The exercises showed us how to chair a meeting and handle things independently. It taught us that we don’t have to rely on teachers to make decisions and to team up with other representatives. As the day went on we thought about our school council and made a plan to increase confidence in it by turning our ideas into actions rather than just complaining. I enjoyed the day thoroughly and found it very useful' Odette Donnachie 8R

 

'When we had the school training, I think that it really helped a lot because we came out with good ideas to start thinking about what changes we want to see happening in the school. Our Trainer was keen for us to turn ideas into actions. My team's idea was to have some microwaves in the school canteen. We all thought this was a good idea as students could bring their own food into school and go to the canteen and warm it up. I think we worked extremely hard during the day and feel we can help build up ideas for the school.' Kezia Daw 7C
