Student Parents & Carers Group
Claire Brookes is the Students’ Union President at Nottingham College. A full time Higher Education Student who is also a mum of three. She knows how hard it can be for students who are parents or carers to balance college work and home life, especially during lockdown. This is why she has decided to start a Student Parent and Carer Group. This is a non-judgemental space for these students to talk to other student parents and carers, for peer support and share ideas on balancing home learning and home schooling. This group is also open to students who might be taking care of siblings during lockdown, due to their parents having to work.
The first meeting is on Thursday 4th February at 4pm. We will look at hosting other events too. Students who are interested in being part of this group please complete the enrichment form here or email email@example.com.
Have your voice heard at Nottingham College
At Nottingham College we value your voice and want to ensure that you have the opportunity to share your experience as a student, to support us in creating positive changes for all.
During lockdown and during this difficult time we want to ensure there are still plenty of opportunities for you to shape your experience. Here are just a few ways you can do so!
Come along to our FIRST Virtual Student Conference
This conference will be hosted on Microsoft Teams on Wednesday 10th February @ 2pm, and is open to ALL students and will give them lots of valuable information, which will hopefully support going forward with their studies at Nottingham College. The panel will be made up of members of the college Senior Leadership Team, the Wellbeing Team and the Students’ Union. There will also be opportunity for students to ask questions to our panel.
There will be information on;
- How COVID has effected the college and what these changes mean
- What you can get involved in, to make the most out of your student experience
- How to look after your wellbeing, including information on internal and external support
- How to stay safe during lockdown
- There will also be time for a Q&A session at the end of the conference.
You should have received the information of the event, including the link, to your Student email. If you haven’t received the link contact us on the details below.
Term 2 Student Voice Boards
We’re always looking at enabling students to raise concerns, and the next round of Student Voice Boards will start straight after half term. If you are a Student Rep, you will be invited to your meeting by your faculty area soon. If you are unsure who your Student Rep is speak to your tutor or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
These meets are a chance for Student Reps to feedback on their classes experience during their time at Nottingham College, and discuss ways to make improvements with the manager of your faculty area.
For more information about student voice and how you can get involved then email email@example.com
We want to hear about your student experience during the lockdown. We have created this short survey for you to complete. This will help us understand where we need to improve.
The survey is anonymous, but you will need to log in using your college email. This is just so we can verify you are a student and you only complete the survey once.
