    Varsity Style Jackets for School reps

    Rejected
      Students should feel proud to be a rep at BCU and is a great way for students to approach them should their be any concerns within their school. It would give School l reps a lot more belongingness to their role and school as well as a way of generating more feedback for their schools, empowering students to use their voice! We believe that Varsity style jackets would help do this and is a way to celebrate our roles at BCU. School reps would like a meeting with VP Voice to discuss how they could improve their visibility and vote on how they do this.

    3:28pm on 3 Mar 22 Students will be aware of their school reps when on campus and feel more able to approach them to suggest ideas or give feedback as it is a visual way of making it clear much like the student ambassador uniform for open days students know who is who

    11:29am on 3 May 22 This Idea has been rejected because there is already a plan for the Activites and Representation team at the SU to implement this for next year.

    Your idea then goes live, here on the Ideas Board for other students to vote and comment.

    It will be live until:

    • it reaches 16 positive votes
      or until the end of the academic year (whichever comes first)
    • Students can vote with a thumbs up (agree) or thumbs down (disagree)
    • Votes and comments will help the Executive Officer team make decisions

     

    Action

    If your idea reaches the 16-positive vote threshold:

     

    • it will be handed over to the Executive Officer team for review
    • they will discuss the idea and decide what action to take

    If an idea is raised to hold an Executive Officer to account, and it gains 16 positive votes, it will be reviewed at Scrutiny Group.
