A Statement from our Sabbatical Officer

"This academic year has been a challenge due to the current pandemic, but as the UK opens, and restrictions slowly ease, it was a welcomed invitation to attend the NUS Conference in Liverpool. I missed my chance in Glasgow 2019, when I was HE President, incidentally, this turned out to be the last in person NUS conference until now!

It was a fantastic chance to see how NUS has responded to NUS, and the work they are currently doing to enhance student experience, and fight for students. A personal highlight was meeting other Sabbatical Officers and elected officials at their respective College and Universities, and gaining a deeper understanding of how Students' Unions can and should be run. I managed to interact with institutions across the UK with a variety of students from FE to HE. I hope that I can bring some of the stuff I have learnt from other institutions back to B&FC to enhance student experience, and I hope this is reciprocated.

After reading the manifestos and listening to the newly-elected officers campaign, I have no doubts the NUS is in great hands, and my only hope is B&FC can create strong, sustainable bonds with the NUS Vice Presidents of FE and HE." - Jamie Crawford (Students' Union Sabbatical Officer 2021/2022)
