First Place, Afshan Shahid (Level 6, Life and Medical Sciences)
Afshan collected both positive and negative feedback, ensuring that staff are aware of things that they should keep doing and also areas for improvement. Student feedback was collected via online questionnaires posted on canvas as well as on a Whatsapp group chat. A focus group was also held for students to attend in which there were fun activities for the students to complete. Afshan attended a Rep Development Week session, helped out in the Dean award and also helped a society with their events. Their #RepWin is lecturers arranging a day in which they will provide students with information about masters or careers after university, this was an issue previously raised at a Programme Committee Meeting.
Second Place, Beyza Kayali (5, Creative Arts)
Beyza's course peers raised their disappointed in last years Creative Arts Career and Employment Fair for not having Interior Architecture and Design companies. As a result of talking with the careers team, tutors, reps and the head of the art and design department, at this years fair they are including 3 Arch/IAD companies, #RepWin. Additionally, along with some fellow student reps, she will be meeting with the Career and Employment team. Beyza has also been engaging with the Student Rep Accreditation Scheme and is very close to completing the Bronze Level.
Third Place, Eleanor Elston (4, Health and Social Work)
Eleanor collected both positive and negative feedback, ensuring that staff are aware of things that they should keep doing and also areas for improvement. She used the menti.com feedback wall to collect feedback so people could answer anonymously. She also asked some questions to the floor, to get a show of hands and gave out her email address for students to contact her. She also made a separate Whatsapp groups for each of the ambulance trusts so relevant information can be circulated efficiently without confusing other students. Eleanor has therefore clearly been demonstrating the many, many ways Reps can get as much feedback from students as possible.
