Creating Your Own Principles of Student Voice

On a Student level, you are more likely to establish ‘Ground Rules’ specific to you, the other students, and the institution you are in – often these Ground Rules Principles will be very similar to The Nolan Principles, but not using as ‘fancy’ words and language – that’s okay! Your own versions are what work best for you, and by using simpler words and layman’s terms, it ensures that everyone understands and is onboard with the agreed principles.

‘Ground Rules’ may include: 

  • Be Considerate
  • Be Friendly
  • Be Open (as much as you can)
  • Be Polite
  • Be Respectful
  • Be Supportive
  • Encourage Others
  • Engage with Activities
  • Engage with Discussions
  • Get Involved
  • Give 100%
  • Give Constructive Criticism
  • Have a Positive Attitude
  • Let Everyone Have Their Say
  • Listen to Others

 …as just a few examples! 

Think about how these may fit into the formal ‘Nolan Principles’.’

It may be a good idea to work on your own Principles within your institution and group of Student Voice representatives for everyone to adhere to – this would be a good task to do at your first Student Voice meeting.
