Officer Report

VP Education

Gain No.1 - Of the ‘Coming Soon’ Kind

I really wish that this Officer Report was due next week, as I have University Senate to come this week. Please keep an eye on social media this week as there might be some big changes coming!

Gain No.2 - Of the ‘External Trustee’ Kind

I spent some time this month working with one of our Student Trustees, Ellen, and one of our External Trustees, Alison, to shortlist, interview, and appoint a new external trustee to our Trustee Board. This means that we now have 3 external trustees, as we should do.

Leave No.1 - Of the Annual Kind

I had two weeks of leave this month. One week was spent doing some external work for HEFCE, and one week was spent on ILoveTour in Croatia!

Leave No.2 - Of the NUS Kind

I have spent a lot of this month helping students prepare for a NUS Referendum, which is taking place 27th-28th April. The Executive Committee have taken the stance to urge students to LEAVE THE NUS, so make sure you Vote Leave!

Change No.1 - Of the Job Description Kind

I have spent a great deal of time this year working on looking at changing the role of our Sabbatical Officers, and changing their remits.

Change No.2 - Of the Union Council Kind

I have written in my manifesto for this coming year, about bringing back a Union Council. This has been mandated, so I will be doing something about this over the coming months.

As always, I have been working on student ideas, as well as taking any SU Reacts that apply to my remit. Please use these mechanisms to raise any issues to me, or feel free to email me (as a lot of students do) on vpeducation@essex.ac.uk.
