At Shrewsbury College we value your input and offer plenty of opportunities for you to get your voice heard:
- Students Council: Shrewsbury College will work with the Students’ Council as its primary method of engagement with students.
- Student Governors: Student Governors are a vital part of the College’s Leaner Voice. Student Governors are full members of the Corporation and use their experiences as students to help shape the Corporation’s decision-making. We have a download to tell you more about being a Student Governor or you can visit our College Governance website for more information.
- Student Representation: Officers will be elected to the Students Council annually that are representative of the student body. Curriculum Forums will be held termly in each school to allow student representatives to meet with school management teams.
- Student Voice Reps: There will also be a body of consultative to be “Student Voice Reps” elected from each Curriculum area who will attend the Student Convention and subsequent forums. The Student Voice Reps are expected to represent the main course reps from their area and disseminate any information they receive back to the student body.
