I would like to say a big well done to those who won the elections and are now Bath College Students’ Union 2015/16! I look forward to getting to know you all and sharing this experience with you.
Over the month I have chaired the first round of course rep training and meetings, it went really well. It was all new to me as well as the new reps, so it was great to get stuck in and hear what you think. We have changed the way we go about the meetings this year to make them more student led, now the students set the agenda and run the meeting. The students had some great points across the departments and I will now be working to try and make some of these happen.
Over the month I have been doing Students’ Union tutorials across college to raise the profile of the SU and to make sure that students understand how the SU and Participation team can benefit them in many ways. Hopefully I have been around to see you group but if not let me know.
Finally we also ran our first Question of the Month of the year. It’s a great way for us to get a quick bit of feedback and gives me a good opportunity to get around and talk to as many students as possible.
