The Principal opened the first student parliament of the academic year on 14 October 2015 and described it as ‘an exciting way for our students to express the learner voice’.
The Students Council came together with the tutor reps to discuss issues of concern and priorities for Student Council activity over the next academic year. ’The Principal commented, ‘it was great to see so many students attending and participating’. Over fifty students attended which was fantastic considering many gave up free time to come along and discuss issues and concerns.
Students discussed their likes and dislikes about the year so far and had the opportunity to gain feedback from the Student Services team about some of their concerns. Specific feedback to student’s suggestions will be given through Moodle.
It was a really engaging afternoon, with a presentation from the new Student Union Executive, followed by a group discussion about how the Student Union can support the students and the College for the year ahead.
Two further parliaments will be held on 9th December 2015 and 16 March 2016
