Your SU

What is the Students' Union? 

How do you become a member? 

The Students’ Union is here for you, when you enrol at college you are automatically a member, all courses whether part time, full time or apprenticeships are members of the Union.

Exectutive Team

There is an executive team of students that are elected every year to represent your views and opinions and offer you the best college experience possible.

The team is made up of

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Secretary
  • Campus Officers for each campus

The campus officer for your campus is your first point of contact to do with anything you want to change at college including your lessons and your experience outside of the classroom. The President leads the executive team, regularly meeting with the rest of the executive team to discuss plans and what the SU can do for you. 

The students' union provides...

  • Student representation across all sites and study programmes
  • Social activities
  • Campaigns
  • Charity activities
  • Trips
  • Clubs and societies 

The Students' Union exists to make your lives as students better. One of the key ways we work to do this is ensure that your voice is heard on your course. We believe that students should be active partners in their learning while at college, and we work closely with departments and faculties to make changes that will benefit students. 

Student Council and Class reps 

The Executive Team also forms part of the Student Council whcih meets with college leadership to disucss any issues and solve any problems. The council is made up of class representatvies, you will have the opportunity to become your class rep at the start if the academic year. If you decide you would like to be your class rep you will speak to your class and ask them what is going well adn not so well at college, then you will bring this to a meeting with other class reps to inform tutors and management in your faculty. Being a rep is an excellent opportunity to develop your communication, organisational and leadhserip skills, ask your tutor for more information on becoming a class rep.
