sparqs' COVID-19 information hub

The hub was updated regularly during the COVID-19 crisis, and will continue to be available for reference.



The student voice in quality was never more important than during the COVID-19 crisis, given the transformation of the learning experience as a result. One of our initial priorities was to support officers and reps to understand the importance of their role during the pandemic and to help them to carry out effectively. Through this, we identified areas where students needed to influence institutional and national educational policy decisions and supported them to do so, laying the foundations for the future.

Our regular batches of news articles (ciculated by email) are currently being published more frequently, to allow us to keep up with the constantly changing situation. All of our news articles can be found in the usual place on our News page.

In addition to the news articles, we will also be sending out targeted emails from time to time, to highlight sector news, guidance and resources to relevant groups within the sector.  All the information sent out by way of these emails will also be accessible on the sparqs' comms page of this hub, and will be recapped in our batches of news articles, along with other recent updates to the hub, so there will inevitably be some crossover with information you may already have seen.
