Make your ideas become a reality

The Empower platform has been created by students for students.

The platform allows you to:

1. Submit your own ideas and start to make that change you want to see.

2. Vote on ideas that can enhance the student experience, support the local community or make a change across the College. 


Here's our 2019/2020 Campaigns Officer Yusuf, to tell you a little bit more...
