Influencing Change at City
Students on every course in the College should be given the opportunity to elect two Class Reps each year. The role of a Class Rep is to gather feedback from students on their course related to their learning experience, pass that information on to staff and help to make positive changes. This ensures all students get to have a say about the way they are learning.
Class Reps will be invited to attend meetings with College staff designed to identify the ways in which their course can be improved.
The Students' Association offer training to all Class Reps to help prepare them for their role. This is important as it helps Class Reps to know what is expected of them and gives them some useful knowledge on how to carry out their roles effectively.
All students who attend Class Rep Training receive a free Students' Association lanyard for their student ID card. At the end of the year they are also presented with a certificate for attending the training and carrying out their role.

As not all issues students face can be addressed at course level, we also elect Faculty Reps. Faculty Reps are responsible for working with the College and the Students' Association to take forward these issues and to identify where there are common concerns across different courses and Faculties.
Faculty Reps also form part of the Student Representative Council which makes major decisions affecting what the Students' Association's priorities should be and how best they should represent the interests of students.
Here are just some of our wonderful Faculty Reps for 2018/19!
