Make the most of your time at college…

Make memories for years to come by getting involved with our Student Association.

All our students are automatically members of the Forth Valley Student Association. What does this mean for you? It means an opportunity to really throw yourself into the social aspects of college life and have some fun. It also means opportunities to gain new skills and experience by getting involved in their many activities and events throughout the year. And importantly, it means that you’ll always have someone who will make sure your views are heard and will be on hand to offer support and advice.


What the Student Association Offers:

  • Advice on social, welfare and academic issues
  • Support and training for Class Representatives
  • Online student blog ‘Fusion’
  • Representation for the student body – ensuring the student voice is heard throughout the college
  • Social events and activities throughout the year
  • Affiliation for students to NUS (National Union of Students)

Class Representatives

Class Representatives are students chosen by other students to represent them during their time at College.

Why do we need Class Representatives?

Forth Valley College recognises that student opinions are very important and they can have a positive input into academic standards.  Class Representatives ensure that the student voice is heard by providing valuable feedback to staff. They play a vital role in contributing to the quality of learning and teaching and your overall college experience.

The role of Class Representative gives all students a sense of ownership over their learning.  Whether you choose to become a Class Representative or simply engage with your nominated Class Representative, you will have an opportunity to comment on your learning experience.   

 

 

What they do:

  • Speak to students in their class and build up a general picture of what they think of the course
  • Twice a year each class will be invited by the Curriculum Manager to take part in a 'Listening to Learners' focus group.  Class Representatives will support the Curriculum Managers with these focus groups. 
  • Twice a year Class Representatives will be invited to attend the Student Council that is supported by the Student Association President
  • The Student Council provides a great opportunity to discuss teaching and learning approaches, the use of resources i.e materials, equipment, IT and accommodation and any other issues that have an impact on a positive learning experience 
  • Class Representatives can also bring feedback to the Student Association at any time throughout the year.  The Student Association can also help with queries which are not directly related to courses.
