Engage to inspire - student delivery of staff development in practice – the perspective from college students’ associations - New College Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire College Students’ Associations

The engagement of staff is an important component in successful student engagement strategies. Much of this has been delivered in colleges and universities by staff themselves. The Students’ Associations of New College, Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire College led the development of staff development delivered by students. These sessions have proved highly successful and are due to be further developed for the coming academic year.
