Lead Us, Key Dates and Eligibility

 Lead Us is an opportunity for current students to decide who will fill vacant leadership positions within the Students’ Union.

At the beginning of every academic year, each student at UWTSD can self-nominate for a chance to become a Student Trustee, Part-Time Officer or SU Council Chairperson. Our students will select their representatives from the list of nominees.

To be eligible to stand for any of these roles, you must be a registered student at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (or an elected TSDSU sabbatical officer in their first year of office) on Wednesday 16th October 2019

Fancy Leading TSDSU? Lead Us nominations will open on Saturday 21st  September and close on Wednesday 16th October 2019.

Keen to have your say? Voting will open at 10am on Friday 25th October, and close at 3pm on Monday 28th October 2019. 

The sign-up process is officially called Self-Nomination and will last a few weeks, so all students have the chance to learn about what the role means, how it can develop you and how you should write a manifesto.

Part-Time Officers
(Voluntary, Part-Time Positions)

Part-Time Officers are current students who are passionate about their role and have ideas that will hopefully improve the life of the students they represent. More casually know as PTO’s, these students will run campaigns, collect feedback and represent the student body in a wide variety of ways. Each PTO has a different remit, looking after an area of interest or a special group of students.

Carmarthen, Lampeter and Swansea each have their own Campus Council, where each of the campus-based officers report to and from. It’s here at Campus Council that all Ideas and Polices are sent, debated and either passed or rejected. Each Part-Time Officer attends Campus Council and speaks on behalf of the groups of students they represent through their role. Every student at UWTSD can attend Council, but only those elected get a vote.

Part-time officers have a crucial role to play in terms of helping the Sabbatical Officers effectively represent the interests of students, as well as holding them to account and scrutinising their work.
You must study at the campus in question to run for one of these roles.
