First of all thank you for putting yourself forward for a position in your Students' Union. You will be provided with plenty of advice, training and support along the way. We encourage you to look through the election guide available online and to either come into the officers of the SU or contact LTSUElections@leedstrinity.ac.uk with any questions. The guide also includes a candidate conduct policy which all candidates are expected to follow.
On your nomination form you can include a 250 word manifesto and picture. This can be uploaded at the point of your nomination.
For Student Council when you put yourself forward for certain roles you are confirming that you self define in a specific way. More information can be found here.
For Course Rep nominations you are submitting a nominaton for the next academic year. Therefore if you are currently Level 4 you would put yourself forward for the Level 5 role for the 2018/19 Academic Year.
