Student Trainer applications now open!

Tuesday 8 August 2017

We are looking to recruit a team of paid Student Trainers to deliver Student Activities workshops. 

Imperial College Union plays a key role in how students learn, develop and grow during their time at College, especially through the skills they learn through involvement in our activities.

Student Activities provide our key volunteers with the opportunity to develop skills relevant to their committee roles through workshops delivered by Student Trainers.

Skills and experience

We are looking for enthusiastic students who are excellent communicators, confident public speakers, are well organised and reliable and can think on their feet. To apply you should be willing to develop your own skills and motivated to train and support others to develop theirs. No training experience is required as all Student Trainers will attend a one-day train the trainer course and be supported by Union staff to deliver pre-written workshops to our volunteers.

  • Collect and return training materials from/to the Union for each workshop
  • Maintain regular contact with the Student Activities Coordinator
  • Attend and contribute towards workshop evaluation meetings as required
  • Be a positive representative of Imperial College Union
  • Uphold the Union’s commitment to Equality and Diversity at all times

You may also be required to:
