What is Student Voice


Why do we have Student Voice?

  • It ensures that students are part of the college decision making process

  • It creates a learning environment where all students feel they have a voice and can make a difference

  • It gives students skills and confidence to take on challenges both in college and their local communities

  • It improves aspirations and career prospects by giving additional skills and experiences that can be use in applications and interviews
