Staff and student consultation meetings

Student Voice Conference

This is an annual event attended by representatives from all parts of the student body. Staff and Corporation members are also invited to attend. Students have the opportunity to speak openly about their experience of college life.

See our Student Voice section

Student Councils

There is a Student Council on each of the College’s main campuses i.e. Park College, Eastbourne Vocational College and Lewes Sixth Form College. The Councils meet monthly mainly to consider operational issues. Copies of the minutes of these meetings are not normally made available to members of the public.

Quality Improvement Process (QIP)

As part of the College’s QIP process, the College Manager responsible for each Subject Sector Area meets annually with a group of students to obtain their views on the quality of provision. Student feedback is incorporated into the QIP report and QIP action plan for each area. Further information about the results of the QIP process can be obtained from the Curriculum and Standards Committee minutes which are available in the Governance section of the website.
