 This training is an introduction to the CSC and how we can help you run your society as well as tips and information to get you started in your roles. We were also joined by the TCD Ability Co-Op  to advise on how societies can work towards inclusion for your members.
 
 

Note that Freshers Week 2021 is due to take place 6th September and obviously we do not yet know what format that will take, but we will speak about the options and the CSC will be working on planning a safe return to campus throughout the summer and will keep all societies informed.
