Welfare Training Sessions and Discussions 2020-21 (Lent Term)
This term, the Cambridge SU will be running some on-line welfare training sessions. All are suitable for JCR/MCR Welfare/Support Officers, Liberation Campaigns, Academic Officers and Faculty Reps, clubs and societies, and any student volunteers with an interest in welfare support.

If you haven't done it already, we recommend 'Essential Skills for Supporting Students' in the first instance. To register, please tick your selection.
