Festival Of Student Governance - Watch Recorded Sessions
Our Festival of Student Governance on 3rd November 2020 brought together 60 representatives from colleges across the country. We know that some student governors couldn’t make it though; so we’ve arranged for recordings from the event to be edited into bite-size chunks for you to be able to watch back.
Alumni Catch-Up Events
Every 6 months, we host a catch-up session for all previous participants of the Student Governor Programme (alumni). These events help us to continue to develop our student governor community and are part of our continued investment in the leadership potential of this group.
