  • You want the support of your Learner Engagement Team and/or Students' Association to have your voice heard and your college needs met, in a respectful environment – both to staff and students.

What we do...

The main objectives of the Learner Engagement Team are to:

  • Support learner participation in key decision-making processes at course, campus and college levels to ensure learner views are taken in to account.
  • Work in partnership with the Students’ Association to work actively and effectively on behalf of the student body.
  • Listen to and use learner feedback to inform self-evaluation, quality improvement processes and college services.
  • Encourage an environment of respect and trust with regards to relationships between staff and learners, which will facilitate on-going and constructive dialogue about all aspects of the learning experience.
  • Work with students to enrich their experiences though planning and contributing to college events and engaging with both the college community and wider community.
  • Collate the views and feedback of students through a range of communication channels including email, social media, Moodle and class representatives.

Be Engaged

Be Engaged is a brand new awards-based student engagement programme that’s designed to get students involved in a wide range of activities outside the classroom, but within the College.

It’s a chance for you to learn new skills and meet new people – while achieving additional awards and recognition from the College.

Visit the Be Engaged page on Moodle for more information on the programme and how to get involved.
