Manifestos Vice President Student Experience Lee Collyer Sophie Druce Amy Wescott Lois Wilkinson Re-open nominations


Lee Collyer Candidate for Vice President Student Experience I have been fortunate to be involved within a society here at Worcester. The experience has allowed me to witness firsthand how such opportunities can enhance a student’s experience in so many ways…So many more student’s deserve the opportunity to enhance their experience!! My Policies:Fast response – You have an issue, I won’t keep you waiting. Team Worcester Ethos – Opportunity for all societies to combine ideas, discuss hot topics and support one another to help us grow as a community Pro-active students – Encourage, enthuse & provide support for students to action their ideas. More Links– Develop further links between our societies, local clubs & establishments to create pathways for students into the community, and for coaches to support our societies. Volunteering opportunities & Initiatives – These should be more frequent, with better publicity and ease of access. Bridging the Gap – Safe, cheap and easy access between The Hive and the St. Johns & City Centre campus is a priority. The Wider Community – Make a conscious effort to reach out to students who are often overlooked Timetable vs. Participation – To push for student timetables from all pathways to affiliate both learning and participation.
