As a general committee representative you will have the opportunity to actively participate in meetings and represent the student body in key strategic plans.

To make the most of your experience and learn how to advocate effectively for students, general committee representatives receive access to free training and recognition for their participation through RMIT LEAD. General committee training is a two hour session which helps representatives:

  • learn committee meeting protocol
  • develop leadership qualities
  • enhance communication and interpersonal skills

Eligible students who attend training receive a LEAD certificate signed by the Vice-Chancellor and recognition on their academic transcript.

As a student representative on a general committee, you can attend a training session by RMIT LEAD. Training is held at the start of Semester 1 and Semester 2; when training is available you can book in via CareerHub.

The training is a free two-hour session designed to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge you will need to fulfill your role as a general committee representative and expand your employability skills.
