New team, who dis?
July has been a very busy month for the sabbs – training, training, some more training and some big plan planning meetings. Week one and two started with us getting stuck in with Big Plan planning sessions; working with staff from all over the SU, we used your feedback to establish how we can make this year’s plan successful. Through our roles and passions we also decided which officers would sit on which Big Plan group:
Food on campus
Cost of Living
We also did some training for the second side of our role as trustees. As well as public speaking training, training sessions with the University to find out more about the PGR learning cycle and many many more (honestly, a screenshot of our calendar last month would give you all a clearer picture!).
As a new team we’ve also been doing some amazing team bonding activities so we could get to know each other and learn how each other works. One of the activities involved being on campus bright and early (that 5:30am alarm still gives us nightmares) to go on a photo scavenger hunt to earn money for our stay in Brighton. If we didn’t know each other before that trip, we promise we do now!
This month has been so informative and has really helped in us understanding how to effectively fulfil our roles this year.
Some of the sabbs also graduated 3 weeks into the role!! It was a genuine week of excitement and pride after 3 / 4 years of hard work.
Looking forward to the next blog so we can share more of the role based work we’re getting up to after these 7 weeks of training!
