Student Voice – Your opinion counts!
Every group/class of students will elect a member to represent them at course team meetings with the course staff. This provides an opportunity for students to express their opinions, give comments about the course, raise any issues on behalf of their peer group and receive feedback and news of progress from the staff.
Training on how to perform well as a Student Rep is offered online in the form of a Student Rep Handbook and by sessions put on by the Student Engagement Team.
Student Reps will also be invited to focus groups with senior managers to voice concerns or appraisal of your experiences at college. During training, Student Reps will be offered the chance to put themselves forward to be School Reps and to represent their school on the Student Parliament, where they’ll help to make decisions about how the union represents students, organises activities, looks after student welfare and spends the union budget.
