On Wednesday 25 October 2017 NUS-USI hosted a student governor networking and development day, funded by Department for the Economy. The six student governors from all FE colleges attended. We covered the roles and responsibilities as a student governor, effective communication, handling paperwork and how to have courageous conversations. Olivia Potter-Hughes, NUS-USI President also hosted a session with the student governors to share her own experiences as student governor at Belfast Met. The day also gave the student governors the opportunity to meet each other and form a network for the year ahead.
