About the Class Rep system

ECSA recruit, train & support the Class Reps at Edinburgh College. Every year, your class will elect two fellow students to be Class Reps. These representatives are vital to improve the learning and teaching experience at Edinburgh College.

Class Reps act as our eyes & ears, identifying and reporting issues at the class level, as well as working with us to create solutions. Being a Class Rep is very rewarding as you get to help shape and improve the college for current and future students.

Being a rep is not a huge commitment - you will need to attend one training session, and  after that we host four conferences over the course of the year. After each conference we produce a report about what was discussed and the issues identified. This report is then presented to Edinburgh College's Senior Management Team for them to consider and improve on areas highlighted. You can read these previous reports below as well as other relevant documents.

If you at any point have any questions about Class Reps at Edinburgh College please get in touch on
