Student Representation

We aim to listen to learners’ feedback from every course area at every campus and instigate changes to improve things for all learners by building on our strengths and promoting good practice.

We do this by running several learner and stakeholder surveys, learner voice forums with appointed course reps, digital champions and student governors to discuss issues, concerns, compliments and suggestions.

We are always keen to hear what learners have to say about their course and college experience.
