STUDENTS' UNION COORDINATOR

Hello my name is Rachel; I am the College Organiser working for BSU here at Northbrook. It is my role to make your experience here at Northbrook College everything you expected and more.

As a recent graduate myself, I know how important it is for you, as a student, to have a positive learning experience. I am here to support you with each and every aspect of your college experience, whether that be joining new societies and making a great group of friends, assisting you with planning a music event you have always dreamt of hosting, or supporting you through academic appeals or complaints.

I am your connection between your Students’ Union and the college. I will meet with key members of staff representing your views in order to make positive changes around your college and ensure that the student voice is heard.

I am based in the Students’ Union office (Room 112), which is on the ground floor in between the refectory area and the music department on the West Durrington Campus. Please feel free to pop in for an informal chat regarding any ideas or issues you may have.

ACTIVITIES

Throughout the year we arrange activities for you as students to get involved in. Are you a music student? Get in touch about performing at our music gigs. Passionate about mental health? Come and help with our health and wellbeing campaigns we run throughout the academic year. Always dreamt of being a president of your own society? Easy. Pop into the office and we’ll support you in setting up your very own society.

Keep an eye on the events calendar to keep up to date with what’s happening at Northbrook College.

STUDENT VOICE

Essentially this is the most important part of your Students’ Union; with your student voice we can effectively shape your college and learning experience. Being a course rep is an important and exciting role and your chance to make a difference to your time at Northbrook College. Previous course reps have had a wealth of achievements and positive changes around college, not only have they gained plenty of transferable skills and something great to add to their CV they have;

• Successfully campaigned for a counselling service to be re-introduced on site. • Improved the quality of the dance studios, which resulted in a brand new roof. • Extended library and workshop hours during those peak periods.

VOLUNTEERING

Ever thought of expanding your employability skills? Giving back to the community?

This year we will be working closely with Worthing and Adur council and helping with the child refugees who will be arriving from Syria. There are many ways you as students can be involved, we will be looking for volunteers to help decorate homes, clothes and toys donations, and various fundraising activities, keep your eyes peeled!

Go Green! A student led sustainability initiative with lots of plans for the academic year including ‘feeding the 500’ with leftover food. Want to get involved? Come in and see Rachel in room 112 West Durrington Campus.
