Senior student officers in colleges

This page provides information for senior officers in college students' association with education or learning and teaching remits.

sparqs' main mechanism of support is the quality induction event, That's Quality! Colleges, for new student officers and those who support them. Introduced in 2015. the event is about engaging in quality processes at the college level. 

Read our Quality Handbook for Colleges, which explains some key quality terminology as well as some other relevant sector information.

Previously our main event to support college officers was the College Student Leadership programme (previously called Supporting College Student Governors), run jointly with NUS Scotland.  As of 2015 we provide this support via separate events, with sparqs delivering That's Quality! and NUS Scotland delivering their new Lead and Change programme.
