Get your voice heard and have your say!
We believe that student representation is essential in all areas of College life. It is important to us that you feel involved and consulted every step of the way in your learning journey. The Student Executive and Students’ Union are excellent vehicles to help you be heard, so you can have your say and play your part in making your time with us even more interesting and fun.
Any AS student can apply to become a member of the Student Executive. There are 14 official positions, from Sports Officer to Secretary, each with different responsibilities. Elections are held once a year, with each member voted in by other students.
As a member you will help to plan college events, decide on charities for student fundraising activities, support nationwide fundraisers such as Red Nose Day and Children in Need, work closely with members of staff on college-wide projects, start up a specialist club or support existing College societies.
If you relish the chance to improve your communication skills by speaking for your friends and peers at a level which makes a real difference, then becoming a member of the Student Executive is for you!
Any student on a course of more than 10 weeks is automatically a member of the Students’ Union. It’s the brains behind all student events and trips, so it really pays to be involved!
Previous students have enjoyed trips to theme parks, freshers’ fairs, Karaoke, BBQs, weekends away and charity fundraising.
