Our Voice, Our College focus groups are created student support the Head of Student Support would facilitate. This means that students get to meet and discuss the issues they have, with the staff that can implement the changes directly.
Why Do We Hold Focus Groups?
We found that during the Our Voice, Our College weeks, there was not enough time to dive down into issues concerning students, so we decided that by holding these focus groups, we could take some time to discuss the issues not only with other members of staff but also with students. BPCSU want to make changes and this process allows students and staff to work together to implement this through an action plan, that will be shared and updated at regular intervals to show progress.
How do I get involved with BPCSU focus groups?
There are a variety of ways to get involved with focus groups. These are listed below:
BPCSU will tell students about focus groups in a variety of ways
- Through your PDT session on Sway
- Through Social Media channels
- Through the Student First website
All you have to do is message us or tell your PDT, who will then inform us.
BPCSU will also set up an event for each focus group through Student First, where you can book yourself onto this session and find out all the information you need.
Who can attend a focus group?
Any student at The College can attend any of the Our Voice, Our College focus groups. Just come along and have your say on the subject being discussed. The more students we have, the better the action plan that is created in order to implement the changes that students need and want.
What happens after I attend?
During the focus group meetings, students and staff will create what we call an action plan. This will contain two short term actions, two medium term actions and one long-term action. These actions will be monitored and tracked by BPCSU and will be made available to students to review.
