Since September 2007 every college has been required to develop a strategy or plan which lays out how the organisation takes notice of what its learners think about their college and their learning experience.
Nescot's strategy sets out how students can give us feedback and how we will use the information you give us. It includes wide ranging methods for telling us what works for you and what doesn't and also includes opportunities for groups and individuals. Being involved can be as big or as small a part of your time here as you want; you can represent others, share your opinions, influence decisions and help us take a spot check on things we are doing. Most importantly, by being involved you will be helping us to make the right changes for your success.
During the first few weeks of term you will spend some time getting to know your classmates and every class will elect their Class Representative for the coming year. Find out more about being a Class Rep by downloading an information sheet. Being a Class Rep is a great way to show future employers and university admissions that you like to get involved and do more than just turn up! Class Reps can get involved in designing courses, getting new activities started and in helping us to understand what their class thinks would improve their whole experience at Nescot.
Every half-term, Class Reps meet with senior staff and governors at the Student Voice Forum to raise issues, discuss new developments and to make suggestions about things that would improve college for learners. Representatives with individual support needs are welcome to bring their support assistant to the meeting. All the suggestions and issues are followed up and the changes made as a result of your comments are fed back to you before the next meeting on posters and through your Class Reps. If you would like more information about getting involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org
