Supporting youstudent union wirral met conway park

The Students’ Union has an ‘open door’ policy and students are welcome to call in whenever the office is open for a general chat or to discuss a specific problem. Whilst we can’t promise to solve every issue we will do our best to signpost you to the people who can.

Very occasionally, students will find themselves in need of help with a disciplinary issue and we have a dedicated Officer who will support you through the process. If youwould like their assistance please contact the Students' Union.

The Students’ Union works closely with members of the college staff to organise and facilitate the ‘Student Voice’. The Union helps to recruit course representatives and organises training events and meetings which reps attend and put forward their views and opinions on behalf of the other students in their groups.

The Course Representatives play an important role within the college, not only are they the sovereign body of the Students’ Union, but they speak on behalf of their fellow students at the Student Representative Council meetings, which is a two way flow of information. They tell the college what they are doing well and not so well. The college staff representatives listen to all comments and, where possible, act upon those comments. Any actions taken or reasons why actions cannot be implemented are fed back through their personal tutors. The Students’ Union give them information about activities and events that have been organised by the Union.


Representationstudent union wirral met conway park

The Students’ Union not only represents their students internally, but also at local and national levels.

Students’ Union Officers attend NUS Conferences, lobbying the government and your MPs with NUS against tuition/top-up fees and other issues.
