City Lit Student panel

What does the panel do?

The main purpose of the Student Panel is to act as a critical friend and focus group to help us improve the quality of our courses, college spaces, how we communicate with students and the service that we offer.

Through its work the panel has input into quality improvement throughout City Lit and our self-assessment, and future planning are informed more strongly by the views of students.

Panel members have an impact on our quality improvement, student experience and teaching and learning strategies whilst enhancing their personal communication and leadership skills and making a positive contribution to the development of adult learning.

We invite students to join the Student panel each autumn term.
