What our Students say

At college we always want to hear your views to help us improve.

Student Council 

You can represent your classmates and make sure their voices are heard. Student Council meetings are held every term where members discuss topics raised by their peers.

Safeguarding Ambassadors 

The college has a team of student safeguarding ambassadors who support the designated safeguarding lead and Heads of Learning Centres to develop accessible policies, promote safeguarding , represent the college at local advocacy groups and participate in recruitment of new college staff. As well as safeguarding ambassadors, each centre has a student council, where students voice their opinions and ideas for college developments, policies, website, events etc.

Student survey

Every year we ask our students to tell us about their time with us at college. Below you will find the feedback from each college centre for the end of the academic year 2019-20.
