Su Voice Web

Hello again from the Nottingham College Student Wellbeing team!

​ Firstly, whether you are currently in education, or thinking about returning to study, we hope you have been keeping well! We also hope you enjoyed some time off over Easter, despite it being very different to the usual Easter holiday.

We thought we’d share a bit of info about what we’ve been work­ing on to make sure we con­tin­ue to sup­port our stu­dents, and to ensure we still hear their voic­es while we’re in this peri­od of remote learning.

Student Voice Board

We hold reg­u­lar Stu­dent Voice Board meet­ings, which allow our stu­dents to have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to shape their expe­ri­ence and make pos­i­tive changes to Col­lege life. Our stu­dents can vol­un­teer to be a Stu­dent Rep for their class each year, and it’s an oppor­tu­ni­ty to get valu­able expe­ri­ence and help oth­er stu­dents to influ­ence deci­sion-mak­ing in the Col­lege. We are cur­rent­ly work­ing on a plan to devel­op online meet­ings, so that we can ensure our stu­dents still have a voice at Not­ting­ham College. 

Our cur­rent stu­dents can find out more on the Well­be­ing Hub which can be accessed through our stu­dent intranet. 

Elections Web

We are also work­ing hard on the Stu­dents’ Union (SU) elec­tions. Our SU sit at the top table when it comes to deci­sion mak­ing about stu­dent sup­port ser­vices, new facil­i­ties and invest­ments in the Col­lege. Every year we run elec­tions to appoint stu­dents to be SU Offi­cers. When you join us, you could make a real dif­fer­ence to the stu­dent expe­ri­ence by putting your­self forward. 

We realise that this year we are in excep­tion­al cir­cum­stances, and so things will be run a lit­tle dif­fer­ent­ly. How­ev­er, we want to ensure that we have an SU in place ready to sup­port stu­dents when we do return back to Col­lege. To find out more, keep an eye out on the Well­be­ing Team social media accounts for more details when we launch this. 

The Stu­dent Coun­cil is still hold­ing vir­tu­al week­ly meet­ings to dis­cuss any bar­ri­ers stu­dents might be fac­ing, and to see what we can do to sup­port them dur­ing this dif­fi­cult time.

Enrich­ment activ­i­ties are a big part of Col­lege life, and we’re work­ing hard to give our stu­dents the chance to con­tin­ue with enrich­ment remote­ly. The Stu­dent Well­be­ing team have been busy on social, post­ing an App of the Day and oth­er things that peo­ple can use to help look after their well­be­ing. These are suit­able for cur­rent stu­dents and any­one inter­est­ed in wellbeing! 

We would still love to hear your ideas on how you are keep­ing busy! Just let us know on social and we might be able to fea­ture you on our chan­nels! We’ll also be run­ning some vir­tu­al events for our stu­dents such as a live quiz being sup­port­ed by our Stu­dent Council. 

We’d also like to take this oppor­tu­ni­ty to find out what things our stu­dents would like to do, both now while we are at home, and when we get back to reg­u­lar Col­lege life. Let us know your ideas!
