Events

Events include:
• Community events such as our Freshers Fairs, Christmas Fairs and a number of smaller fun activities across the year.

• Our termly Student Parliaments and Liaison Committees giving you the chance to practice skills including how to represent others. You will also have an opportunity to feed back to leaders about how the College is run.
• Curriculum led events such as fundraising, fashion shows, health and fitness week and talent shows.

Student Union

The Windsor Forest Colleges Group supports students to be successful and we work hard to listen to student views about their experiences. We always encourage feedback. One of the ways we do that is through our Student Parliaments, Liaison Committees and Student Union. Most College tutor or curriculum groups have an elected group representative. These reps make up the Student Parliament and are responsible for representing the views of their class on a range of topics including teaching and learning, campus services and college life. The Course Reps also attend regular meetings to discuss their feedback and ideas with the College’s senior management team.
The Student Union Executive has a number of elected representatives. Their job is to lead projects and awareness-raising activities requested by our students. This includes fundraising, organising social events and introducing new services or policies.
In addition to the Student Union Executive and Parliaments, there are positions for students on our Board of Governors for each individual College, where you could represent your peers at the highest level. Being a student governor does involve a lot of responsibility and time, but it’s a great experience and you’ll learn new skills that can’t be easily gained elsewhere.
