The Student Experience Team
It is really important that you get the most from College Life. The role of the Student Experience Team is to make your time at College an outstanding experience.
Our Student Experience team are committed to providing a wide range of activities which enrich the lives of our students. Our activities are designed to allow students to develop a hobby such as art or dance, to participate in sport or fitness activities or to develop employability skills such as teamwork, organisation, planning and budgeting. Activities are student-led, which means that students determine the nature and content of many of them. To ensure that you live student life to the full, our Student Experience Team create an exciting programme of activities around your course timetable, which include games, events, trips, competitions, fundraising and volunteering opportunities. As you can tell, in-between study, there are plenty of opportunities for fun and meeting new friends along the way.
The skilled and highly qualified youth workers are located in the Student Centres at Nuneaton, Hinckley, South Wigston & Harrowbrook Campuses. If you want to learn new skills, try new experiences or just fancy a chat, the team are always willing to help!
The Student Union is a proactive group of elected students who represent their peers and organise student trips and events. The Student Union also form part of the Student Voice and meet with our College Principal three, four times a year to discuss any issues relating to College life. You can get actively involved in the decision making processes of the college.
