PVP Postgraduate Taught Tom Allars had his first and second round of PGT Executive Meetings this term, giving him the opportunity to provide postgraduate feedback directly to the Directors of Education and enacting some genuine change. He also had one-to-one meetings with as many of the PGT Academic Reps as possible which resulted in some really productive conversations on the issues postgraduate students face.
He’s been spending a lot of time at St Luke’s with the other Sabbatical Officer working with students on campus-specific issues they faced and raising their profile. He’s also been working with University Wellbeing Services, Accessibility, and the Student Guild’s Advice Unit on creating an Individual Learning Plan systems and working on improving its effectiveness for postgraduate students.
He’s excited to be working on new and interesting communication strategies for postgraduate students to better include them in the Guild.
