Bridge College students take part in Natspec Student Parliament 2021
On 29th April Bridge College students took part in an ‘all-college’ Student Parliament meeting via Zoom as part of the Student Voice curriculum.
This event enabled students across the country to meet, discuss and collaborate on topics that are important to them. It was an opportunity to bring the collective Learner Voice to one forum and have their say.
Topics included the Natspec Games 2021, affecting change through the Disability Strategy Survey, and the disabled student’s movement. Students had opportunities to work in smaller, break out groups as well as within the main forum.
This was a very exciting opportunity for Bridge College students to participate in an event that focused on key events important to them and to have their say in a forum with other students.
Quotes from students:
Joseph OB: “I felt it (the forum) was really, really good. I liked talking to other students and this made me feel more confident. I liked talking about public transport and that it needs to change to have better access for disabled people”
McKenzie: “I liked asking questions and I liked going up to the computer screen camera and saying to the other colleges that we are Bridge College, and we are very pleased to meet you all. I liked talking about important things with students from different colleges”
Sam P: “I liked listening to other students”
Natasha C: “I enjoyed listening to other students and joining in talking about important things”
Everyone that participated was absolutely amazing and all remained focused and engaged throughout which is a credit to them all! A huge thanks to all students that took part.
