On 6th December at the second student parliament of the academic year,
over 30 tutor reps engaged in an excellent discussion about the sort of College
they wanted Strode’s to be.
A few key highlights from the afternoon were the president of the SU and
his executive team putting forward the motion that due to government spending
cuts, the college is chronically underfunded and they request action and plan
to lobby this to the College’s MP (the Right Honourable Philip Hammond).
The afternoon ended with a feedback from the corner activity where
students spoke to a different number of staff to air their views and give feedback
on certain areas such as curriculum, tutoring, Student Services, IT, Catering
As ever students joined in really positively and made their views known
in a professional and convincing fashion. The next Parliament is in March 2018.
Thank you to the tutors who helped prepare the students so well.
