Education Update - September

When he started as the first Vice President Humanities & Social Sciences, Cameron knew that he wanted to clarify what some of the positions available within Queen Mary Students’ Union entail and make them more defined and easier for students to understand. He completed a review of some of our Education Manual, the SSLC (Student Staff Liaison Committees) agenda template and the Course Rep roles and responsibilities. He provided comments, based on his own personal experience, to try and make the role of Course Reps easier to understand and clarify some existing ambiguities in the documents.

In a collaboration with our Vice President Science & Engineering (Aphrodite) and Vice President Barts and The London (Mat), they have incorporated the compulsory attendance of a student co-chair within the membership of SSLC meetings, in order to make the students more student-led and to centre student voice at the heart of all conversations. The Students’ Union have also helped to develop Annual SSLC Report, which is to be completed at the end of the academic year by the staff and student co-chairs. This will help to ensure that substantive actions are carried over to the next academic year.

Cameron presented all the documents for approval and implementation at ESQB (Education Standards and Quality Board) in late September and he has also been working on improving the Course Rep contribution and reward scheme, reworking the awards to account for the fact that representatives are now elected on an annual basis. Furthermore, he has been drafting and developing a comprehensive handbook for both School Reps and Course Reps that gathers all relevant information that these roles need to successfully carry out their duties.
