There are many ways that you can get involved in shaping college life and representing the college. All of these look great on your UCAS application and CV! Here are just a few…
Members of the Student Union get involved in a variety of activities from sharing the views of the student body with the college management team, organising charity and social events and getting involved in student wellbeing initiatives to keeping students up-to-date on what’s happening around college. Members also have the opportunity to become a college student governor.
We are always looking for students to represent the college at events such as Open Evenings, Welcome Evenings, Taster Days and visits to local schools. Each ambassador receives training and can put these new skills into practice throughout the year. Being an Ambassador really helps to build your confidence, particularly when it comes to public speaking.
Tutor Group Representatives
We encourage students to become more involved with college life from the start of their courses. Becoming a tutor rep means that you will meet regularly to represent the views of students within your tutor group on the curriculum and student life in general.
Student Voice Survey
All students are encouraged to complete this survey twice a year so we can understand what we are doing well and if anything needs to improve. It is an online independent survey, which is benchmarked against 100 other colleges in the country. We consistently score highly in almost every area, from teaching and assessment to feedback and progress, and rank in the top quartile nationally.
