    Centre Leadership

    My leadership roles have helped me to make a positive contribution to the administrative function and decision-making process within the Centre as well as more widely as indicated below:

     Chair of CBMSE SSCC and Champion for the Students’ Voice (since previous probation report)

     Actions taken:

     I have improved the ‘Student Voice’ by enhancing the effectiveness of the Staff-Student Consultative Committee, and ensuring that student opinion is heard at the Learning & Teaching Committee by enhancing the student-staff communication across all aspects of the education process.

    1. Promoted the Student Voice within the Centre by conducting two focus groups (30th Jan 2018/19 and Feb 2017/18) to promote students’ voice and encourage their participation and engagement and collect their feedback on the education process. The outcome of these activities was circulated to all academics and further actions were undertaken. These were also analysed in depth at an ‘Away Day’ with staff and students at Riddell Hall on 22June 2018 to review the organisation of the programmes.
    2. Ensured that the student body has representatives in the SSCC, Learning and Teaching Committee and  Health & Safety Committee
    3. Ensured that student issues from module evaluations, first year and second year experience surveys, the National Student Survey and SSCC are brought to the attention of the Learning & Teaching Committee and the Centre Board
    4. Ensured that the outcomes of SSCC and L&T Committees and the Centre's response to FYE, SYE and NSS are reported back to students
    5. Ensured that students have had the opportunity to comment on any proposed changes to the programmes.
    6. I promote the Student Voice by ensuring the student body has representatives appointed according to protocols of the Students' Union. In the beginning of every academic year, I liaise with the Student officer for Education and the SU Student Voice about raising student awareness of joining SSCC and encouraging future recruitment.
    7. I have recruited additional student representatives to adjust staff/student membership ratio of the SSCC by actively encouraging students to sign up as Course Reps through promotion of the benefits of SSCC involvement and Degree Plus recognition.
    8. I developed a SSCC handbook for use as a student resource
    9. I engaged Course Reps in developing a handover document which includes details of the activities they have undertaken, including hints and tips to the next person taking on this role next year (one page reflection on their time as representatives) to motivate and encourage students to nominate themselves for the role of Course Reps in the next academic year.
    10. Dates of the meetings were aligned with the academic board meetings and the Learning and Teaching Committee meetings
    11. The email of Course Reps has been given to all students after taking their consent. Students were able to contact their Course Reps easily. Following SSCC meetings, all students receive an email including the responses from their module coordinators about issues raised in the SSCC meeting.
