Did you know that College can be SO much more than just being a student! From Class Reps to Web Designers to Party Organisers, the list of extra curricular activity can be endless... as is the list of extra skills that you can gain for your C.V. to impress future employers! (In this current climate the job market is fierce. We can help build your knowledge, skills and experiences…and make sure you shine bright!)
There are two ways to become actively involved with the SRC:
Getting involved in your SRC (Student Representative Council) can open up fantastic opportunities for you. Not only will you meet like-minded people and form friendships, but you will have opportunities to improve the College for current and future students, visit other colleges and attend meetings and conferences throughout the UK. As an added bonus, you can be rewarded with a nationally recognised volunteering certificate.
The direct approach: you get involved in the work and life of the SRC; you take on a role that its you- in the public eye- or working behind the scenes; you attend monthly meetings with the other members; you interact with College staff at all levels; you play an important role in enhancing the college experience for your fellow students.
Become a Class Rep: you represent your classmates. It is vital that students get a say how their education is delivered and supported; and it is vital that their voices are heard! As Class Rep, you will work in partnership with your lecturers to ensure that your classmates are receiving the best learning experience possible. You will also attend the occasional meeting with the SRC to ensure that all student issues and developments are being recognised.
