Election decision at West Nottinghamshire College

As political decisions were being made in Westminster this week between Cameron and Clegg, other election results were being announced at West Nottinghamshire College as a new Students’ Union president was elected.

James Stafford, 19, from Mansfield, has been elected as West Nottinghamshire College’s new president of the Students’ Union for the next academic year with 78 votes.  James is a student on the BTEC national diploma in public services and will take up his new position on 1 July 2010, taking over from Luke Frakes who has held the presidency role for the last academic year.

James said: “I’m really excited about joining the Students’ Union as the new president.  West Notts is a great place to study and I’ve enjoyed my course.  I feel very lucky to now have a job at college and it’s going to be great helping to get the students involved with the many things that the Students’ Union offers.”

As James takes on the role of president he will be joined by three student involvement officers who will support the Students’ Union across the many college sites who will work to ensure all students have access to the Students’ Union services and the college’s learner voice forums.

India Murcott from the beauty therapy curriculum, Nathan Walters from the public services course and Lisa Jinks who is a motor vehicle student will each work 12 hours per week alongside their courses to get students involved with the many activities that the Student’s Union offers at West Nottinghamshire College.

Learner voice co-ordinator, Sue Harries, said: “I’m delighted to welcome James to our team. He has a big challenge ahead of him next academic year as he takes the reigns of the presidents’ role.  He will become a governor on the college’s Corporation Board and will sit on many other college committees.

“However, I know James has the enthusiasm and commitment to tackle these new challenges and is already brimming with fresh ideas to bring to the Students’ Union.  I’d also like to welcome the team of student involvement officers who are going to be an invaluable addition to the service.”
