The most effective course rep initiative in a college
Student Representation at Borders College
Borders College have enhanced their student chaired Faculty Councils which focus on driving change in learning and teaching. The Councils, which are chaired by a student from each faculty and are attended by the Students' Association Executive, focus wholly on learning and teaching. This process enables issues to be dealt with at the Faculty level but also enables issues that may be college-wide to be picked up by the Students' Association to be taken further within the college quality processes. They have been recognised as effective by Education Scotland in a recent External Review.
