Student Leaders Development Programme

Students hanging out


The Student Leaders Development Programme offers a personal development opportunity to all Student Leaders at HSU.


Launched in the 2020-21 academic year, the SLDP is exclusive to students that have a leadership role with the Students' Union. This includes Buddy VolunteersElected OfficersSchool Community Organisers, Society Committee MembersStudent Reps and student staff. It's essentially a training programme with a range of workshops that will help with your personal and professional development. The programme is designed to develop the transferable skills needed to be successful within your role, enhance your employability and encourage interaction across the multiple positions of student leadership supported by the SU. You can also use any hours you spend attending workshops to count towards the Go Herts Award.
