Frequency: Student Staff Liaison Committee, or SSLC, meetings should take place at least once per term, but will often occur twice in Term 1 and Term 2.
Attendance: All Subject Reps selected as SSLC members are expected to attend these meetings as an essential part of their role, and the Subject Chair is responsible for chairing.
Also in attendance will be the department's Director of Education (DoE) and any other staff members who have either been invited by the Subject Chair, or who have requested attendance. The Student Community and Partnerships Associate for your college will also be present to provide administrative support for the meeting, such as taking notes for an action log.
Recording: The Student Community and Partnerships Associate for your college will always be present to provide administrative support for the meeting, including keeping a record of attendance and taking notes of what was discussed for the action log. This role will be conducted by a staff member and is not the responsibility of any student rep.
Purpose: The purpose of this meeting is to discuss any issues raised by students, representatives, and staff, with the intention of seeking consensus and solutions. It is also a place where any suggested improvements to a discipline's academic experience or changes to a department's teaching programmes can be discussed, and examples of good practice from students can also be recognised and shared.
