If you want to know about your Union and what the Executive Committee do and who they are, then you’re looking in the right place.
Our Student Union is an important part of College life and is all about promoting what matters to you. You will get to meet your Union Officers during Freshers’ Week, and they are responsible for lots of exciting extras that include trips, societies and fundraising activities. The Union provides a national ‘voice’ for students. You are automatically eligible for membership of the Student Union once you have enrolled at the College, which means that if you want you can vote in College elections, or even run for Student Governor, and get student discount when you apply for your NUS card.
Charmaine Jacobs - Students' Union
My role as Students’ Union President is to act as a bridge between the Student Voice and East Kent College. My aim is to create a strong sense of togetherness and a feeling of inclusiveness for all and to ensure that all students have a more fulfilled and rich experience of their college life, which I believe every student deserves.
I understand that College can be tough at times, either in your economic, social or emotional life. I want to ensure that our Students’ Union is there to help you overcome these barriers by focusing on the rights, welfare, happiness and wellbeing of our students.
Our goal is to improve support networks by ensuring all students feel comfortable and confident in reaching out for the best possible rights and welfare. My passion is to create a culture of “WE” within the college and make sure ALL students feel confident in raising any issues that occur in their college experience.
As Students’ Union President, I represent YOU with YOUR issues to ensure you have not just a 'good' but an 'Excellent' Student Experience!
