The National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, in partnership with the Union of Students in Ireland (USI), is currently looking to recruit a student associate from each higher education institution (both USI affiliated and non-affiliated institutions) for the coming academic year, on a part-time paid basis.

Student Success Symposium, November 2019


The student associates will support teaching and learning enhancement both within their institutions and at a national level by providing their views and opinions on higher education teaching and learning activities and developments. The student associates will work collaboratively to bring a strong student voice, informed by their lived student experience, to national teaching and learning enhancement in higher education. In addition, student associates will work on such activities as promoting the student-led Teaching Hero Awards and representing the student voice on National Forum funding applications and review panels. At least one student associate will be recruited from each higher education institution. All currently registered students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, across all modes of study are welcome to apply. The student associate recruitment process will be mindful of the diversity of learners within the student population.

This is a part-time position, up to 25 hours per semester (a total of 50 hours per academic year), at a rate of €13.91 per hour.
Applications for this position are now closed.
