Empowering Student Voice Workshop and Conference

We’re excited to announce details of our Empowering Student Voice workshop and conference, designed specifically for Student Councils.

WHO ARE THESE ACTIVTIES AIMED AT?

These sessions are aimed at students in years 7-11 who are part of the Student Council, or have an interest in student voice, at their school. The workshop can also be adapted for delivery to students in year 12-13.


THE WORKSHOP

This Empowering Student Voice workshop is designed specifically for Student Councils and aims to support students to reflect on current practice and consider ways for improvement. The workshop will enable students to:

The workshop is free and lasts for approximately 1 hour.

We recommend this interactive workshop be delivered in person as this will allow for collaboration between students and staff. We also recommend where possible that the main staff member involved in supporting the student council is present at the workshop to support facilitation and the creation of the groups’ action plan.

We may wish to have a pre-workshop discussion with the student council lead to ensure we deliver the most beneficial workshop which aligns with the aims and needs of your student council group. More details can be found in the booking form linked below.


THE CONFERENCE

Tuesday 13 June – Bournemouth University, 9.45am – 2.15pm

Based at Bournemouth University, the conference is designed to build on the themes of the workshop whilst also celebrating the fantastic work Student Councils have accomplished across the academic year.

The event will consist of a keynote speech followed by several engaging and informative sessions all aimed at developing students’ knowledge and skills around the theme of student voice.
