Officer Report

VP Education

G

General Election - Obviously we have had a General Election since the last officer report. I did some independent work for ITN around the General Election, and got to go to the BBC Newsbeat live debate in Manchester. Back in Essex, I offered my support to the political convenors in getting students registered to vote. They didn’t need my support, but massive well done to them for their hard work!

O

Over and out! (Exams/Academic Year done) - We celebrated the end of exams since the last officer report, and results will be out over the next two weeks! Best of luck to everyone. And if anyone has any feedback on how the SU ran exams campaign, email them to vpeducation@essex.ac.uk.

Lots of policy! - We’re coming to the end of the university year too (July 31st), so I’m currently passing all the policies that I said I would. There are policies still to come that I can’t talk about yet, but the year is far from over!

D

Designing PoA for 17/18 - I’ve been sorting out my plans for the coming year to make sure I get everything done and working on the timelines to get everything done and completed.

GOLD!

Also, we saw the university gain Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework. The TEF has been delinked to university fees after the House of Lords amended the Bill, so this really does not have financial implications for students new or returning. This is a fantastic accolade (plus UEA got silver!).

Student Ideas

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.
