Student Voice- loud and passionate at the College

Windsor Forest Colleges Group students are having their voices heard!  This week the second round of Student Parliaments concluded with an event at Strode’s College.

Students at each of the Group’s colleges have proved keen to share their thoughts with over 150 attending the Parliaments. Lots of great ideas have been suggested to improve the Colleges which go on to be discussed through the Student Union Executive teams.

An idea currently being explored for Strode’s is to set up a peer-led support system for students who are anxious and have mental health issues. The environment is naturally also high on the student agenda with plans to run an eco-project. This would involve bug houses and planting which have environmental benefits such as lavender for bees and to purify the air.

Over in Langley the College is showing its commitment to student voice with the creation of an office for the Student Union Leadership team to meet in. This positive move, which gives additional prominence to learner voice, follows a successful student campaign to college governors and senior leadership team.

Other areas of concern raised by students are issues around street safety and knife and gang crime. Suggestions from students include an inspiring visiting speaker programme and how we might raise awareness and tackle these issues. These ideas are being taken forward by the College wherever possible.

Commenting on the huge role the Parliaments play at each of the Colleges, Bernadette Joslin, Assistant Principal Student Services said: “At these recent Student Parliaments it was great to see curriculum staff and support managers engaging in detailed discussions with students about how to improve provision in their areas. It is important that we listen carefully to all student views and respond positively where we can as this is a crucial part of their college experience and our journey of quality improvement.”
