The Student Voice @ Southport College

There are many ways to represent the College such as joining the College council, becoming Student Governor, representing your classmates as Student Rep or promoting the College at an open evening as part of the Student Events Team.

Make a difference with the Student Council

Each year the Student Council recruits a number of individuals who act as representatives for their fellow students. They get involved in a range of projects including organising charity events and working with College management giving their input on important college decisions.

Being a part of the Student Council is a great way of making new friends from different courses, as well as building your confidence and developing teamwork skills; all things that look great on your CV or UCAS Personal Statement.

Student Reps

Student Representatives are chosen from each course at Southport College and these Reps have to attend meetings where they voice feedback from their classmates.

If you volunteer to be a Student Representative you will need to consult with and gather opinions and information from your classmates and then present your findings to College staff.

Student Governor

The College chooses one student to be a Student Governor who represents the student body in meetings of the College Corporation which includes all of the College Governors and senior managers.

If you are interested in being a Student Governor contact the Clerk to the Board of Governors by emailing FarnhillL@southport.ac.uk.

Join the Student Events Team

Each year the marketing team at Southport College recruits friendly, capable students from across the College to join our Student Events Team. The team then work together with our busy marketing department to help deliver a whole range of exciting events on and off the College campus throughout the year. These include open evenings, taster days, school careers fairs, awards events and even our Fresher’s Fest.

It’s a great way to grow in confidence, develop your organisational or public speaking skills, enhance your CV and of course to make new friends too. You will receive all the training and support you need and we do our best to make it enjoyable as well as a valuable work experience to impress future employers.
