Student Voice Gets Heard at Conference

Walsall College students had the opportunity to get their voices heard on Tuesday 7th March, during the 12th annual Student Conference.

The event, which was held in the college’s business and sports Hub, was a chance for students to discuss key issues and make changes to improve their learning experience.

The conference is designed to recognise and champion the views and ideas of its student body and is extremely popular with students, providing a productive way for them to get their voices heard and make changes.

Walsall College Course Representative and Students’ Union President, Mikail Ali stated: “I became a Course Representative and SU President because I wanted to be more involved in college life and I wanted to get the most out of my years here. Students have a real voice at Walsall College and our views are treated with respect. By discussing issues and proposing areas for change, students are able to make a difference.”

Jatinder Sharma OBE, Principal and Chief Executive of Walsall College said: “Here at Walsall College, we are committed to continue providing students with an outstanding learning environment and the only way to do this, is to listen to what students have to say on key issues. We will take the feedback from the conference extremely seriously and students will then remain involved in the forthcoming months as their feedback is used to make the overall student experience at Walsall College even better.”
