Our learners are able to make their views known in a wide range of forums.

Each programme has a student representative who regularly attends meetings with managers and teaching teams to discuss their programme of study. students also take part in College, University and national surveys to assess student satisfaction.

There is also a Learner Voice Forum held each term with the Senior Management team, where you can raise issues and suggestions regarding your courses, College facilities and events. We are also pleased to offer Higher Education student representatives the opportunity to attend our HE conference that is held as part of our dedication to learner voice. Students can also get involved in online forums on the Colleges virtual learning environment, Moodle. Forum posting are responded to by senior managers once a month.
