To allow the student body to engage meaningfully with the working life of the faculty in which they study and to influence the future direction and development of that faculty.
To improve the quality of the learning experience for present and future students.
Each College academic faculty will establish a new Faculty Council annually. The membership is made up of all elected class representatives and the managers from the faculty. The Councils are the most important source of consultation with students with the output used to help progress the faculties quality enhancement agenda. It replaces student representation at course team meetings but is tasked with producing a report on the quality of the students’ experiences for incorporation into the department’s self-evaluation and development planning. It has responsibility for monitoring the actions for improvement from the faculty focus groups and ensuring that these lead to improvements in the student experience.
The faculty Council has similarities to other structures in our democratic society and in the business world such as local authority councils and company boards. Although it has very limited delegated authority from the College currently, its views are extremely important and need to be considered in faculty plans. The students have an opportunity to experience what it is like to be an elected representative sitting on and managing the business of a council and reporting back to their electorate. In this sense its function is an important component as the College strives to incorporate the four capabilities of Curriculum for Excellence in its work with students.
