What is Student Engagement?

Student Engagement at City of Glasgow College is about students and staff working together to improve the learning and teaching experience. We want you to be involved in all aspects of your learning, to help shape the student experience and be a key part of the college’s decision making process. 

Student Engagement Officers work across faculties and support the work of the Students’ Association to bring student groups together to action change. Students gain experience working in partnership with college staff across different departments. They are provided with professional frameworks and opportunities to develop effective communication and group working skills while working towards shared goals that benefit their classmates. Check out the sparqs framework for Student Engagement.

How Do I Engage?

There are several ways you can get involved:

  • Be part of the Students' Association - The Students’ Association (CitySA) is run by an elected President, Vice Presidents and Executive Officers which form a student parliament. Students involved in these processes get the opportunity to share their experiences and represent students’ views.  
  • Become a Class Rep – Class Reps are the voice of their classmates and course groups. They work together to explore what works well at the College and what could be changed. Class Reps have an opportunity to speak to students and staff about the student experience and work in partnership across different areas of the College. 
  • Become a volunteer – Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, meet new people and gain valuable work experience. There are lots of opportunities available through CitySA’s Volunteering HUB.
