Students have their say
Regent College students get the opportunity to have their say and debate the big issues of our times in regular ‘Soapbox’ sessions.
Topics discussed since September last year have included female circumcision, knife crime, homicide and the death penalty, to women and their role in the environment. Each session involves a guest speaker, students then have a chance to voice their opinions, ask questions and debate the issue.
Guest speakers have included Penny Poyzer ‘green’ author and broadcaster, Ken Lowells from Amnesty International and PC Harvey from Leicestershire Constabulary.
Sima Jadav, a Learning Mentor at Regent, organises Soapbox with colleague, Jess. They said students have found Soapbox sessions interesting, an eye-opener and factual. A Law student said: “ Its good to be able to voice my personal opinions and debate the topics with my friends.”
Duke of Edinburgh Awards
Regent College is able to facilitate students to gain their Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award. Whether you have gained your Bronze Level, or not, you will be coached and taught appropriate camp craft and expedition skills to achieve your award and signpost to voluntary organisations and activity providers to gain your qualification.
Sports Ambassadors wanted
Sports Ambassadors will become a key part of the student voice within the college. They will help to spread the word on all things sporting and health, and will be active in the promotion and recruitment of students to the Regent College Sports timetable.
Sports Ambassadors will be actively involved in competitive sports or regularly participate in the college's programme of physical activity. They will act as role models for other students.
Links will be created for Sports Ambassadors to have regular communication with the Student Council to ensure all activities are publicised around the college.
Sports Ambassadors will encourage participation from students who do not possess the same confidence as they do themselves, helping to make sport accessible to all and ensure even the quietest voice has a chance to be heard.
Sports Ambassadors will play an active role in coaching and mentoring other students and will get opportunities to test these skills out in the wider community.
