Arrangements for obtaining the views of Staff and Students

The Instrument & Articles of Government of the College require the publication of arrangements for consulting with students and staff at the College on the determination and periodic review of the educational character and mission of the College and the oversight of its activities.


Students

The Learner Voice is at the heart of the College’s decision making and quality assurance processes.

Students are consulted via the following means:

  • Student focus groups
  • Student surveys carried out by the College
  • Course representative feedback
  • Student Council

The College also engages with its HE students through the feedback received as part of the National Student Survey.

Feedback from students feeds into the College quality assurance and review processes, including the Self-Assessment Report and the Quality Improvement Plan.


Staff

The College seeks to engage with staff through the following opportunities:

  • Staff surveys
  • Joint Consultation Committees
  • Staff Briefings by the Executive Team
  • College Committees and Focus Groups

Staff and Student Governors

One staff and one student governor are elected to the Board of Governors and play a full part in the business of the Board. In addition to its responsibility to review the educational character, mission, values and strategic priorities the Board also monitors all aspects of the College’s provision, its financial performance and its outcomes for students.
