Learner Voice

We value our students and listen to them in many ways. We have an active Student Council and a Learner Voice coordinator who organises regular meetings and focus groups for students so that they have a say in how the College is run. Every tutor group elects a representative who can represent the views and concerns raised by students in their group. You can also represent your colleagues as Student President or become a member of the Student Union or Student Achievement and Learning Team.
