A busy week for the SU

Most weeks are busy for us here at the SU, and last week was particularly hectic. Here is a rundown of what we've been up to:


Steve attended the NUS regional network meeting which was held at Blackpool& Flyde College. It was a really interesting day and we discussed many topics including student feedback mechanisms, student engagement, learner voice& quality improvement as well as getting an update on NUS national campaigns.


Today was student rep forum day; time flies, cannot believe we are up to our 4th forum of the year already. As usual it was a lively meeting, we discussed many cross-college topics and were treated to a preview of the plans for the college new build - it all looks very exciting!


Steve joined in with the 5-a-side football activity organised by Ray, our College's sports coordinator. It was a fun session, but exhausting, Steve reported that he was aching all over after the game. We think he needs to get more practice :-)


Steve was busy today working with our learners at Stoneleigh Academy. IPad Club is defiantly taking shape now, the group are using Garage Band to produce their own song; we cannot wait to hear the finished article.


Today students from the College’s Media department staged their own Harlem Shake in the Green Room. Students from around the College took part & it was 10 minutes of madness, but all in a good cause as we raised £130 for the College charity – well done everyone.
