I have met so many people while being an SU Exec member and have been given many great opportunities such as going to Liverpool to represent Bournemouth and Poole College at NUS National conference.” Bruce Macdonald SU Exec 2013 – 2015 We run two sets of Elections each year.

Their role is to represent the students in their class for the whole year. Reps receive training in October and this enables them to talk to their peers about any problems with their course or the College along with helping staff to promote upcoming events and trips! Every term all Reps attend Forum meetings for their curriculum area. They meet with the head of the curriculum area and a member of the College Senior Leadership Team. These meetings are for Reps to relay student comments and to discuss all aspects of College with feedback from students – they are the voice of their class. There are tonnes of opportunities for Reps to get involved and get their voices heard; one of which being the annual Student Feedback Conference, which all Reps are invited to attend! If you would like to become a Rep speak to your tutor to put your name forward to be elected by your class.
