Joel, VP Activities & Participation

VP Activities & Employability

Your VP Activities is responsible for ensuring your voice is heard on all issues relating to extracurricular activities, including sports, societies, volunteering and events.


My Name is Joel, I studied Visual Effects here at LSBU. My first involvement with the SU was in my first year when I put myself forward to take over running and hosting the weekly Quiz here on campus! This year I have been working with the opportunities team to make sure sports and societies are more inclusive than ever, working with the Events Coordinator to ensure that the online events calendar was ever changing and evolving to student demand. I was limited in my role by the online working during the pandemic, but I am so excited to do the things I had put on hold this past year to make YOUR student experience outside of the classroom an immersive and engaging experience.

    Build the Backbone of the Student Voice

    • VP Education

    What's the big idea?

    Course Reps are the backbone of our student voice system. Historically, our course reps have been struggling to represent their cohort due to lack of proper training when they get elected, lack of communication support throughout the year, no incentives. However, in the 20/21 academic year, our student voice team developed an inclusive course rep guide and a training programme. The big idea is to recruit course reps for every course, provide training, organise monthly course rep forums, launch an incentive program.

    How will it benefit students?

    If we can successfully run this project, around 1200 course reps will gain leadership skills, time management skills, public speaking skills, and so many more. The key focus for this project is to make our course reps known to their cohort and everyone.
