Student conference with Graham Pennington, staff members from the college and student representatives

Wednesday 26th June marked a significant milestone at Sandwell family of colleges as we hosted our first-ever student conference, bringing together students from across all three campuses. The event aimed to amplify our students’ voices, providing them with a platform to share their perspectives and contribute to shaping our colleges communities.

Graham Pennington, CEO and Principal of Sandwell family of colleges attended and expressed his excitement about the conference. “It was inspiring to witness our first ever conference and hear from the students themselves. Their enthusiasm and insights are invaluable as we aim to create an inclusive and responsive educational environment”.

Raza Hussain Spoken word Artist and former Cadbury Student joined us as our guest speaker who spoke about his journey and his home City Birmingham. Additionally, Tarenpreet student president of Central Saint Michael’s Sixth Form and Central Campus and Bilal, student president of Cadbury Sixth Form College shared their personal thoughts and journey at the college.

A key highlight for all attendees was the breakout sessions where students had the opportunity to engage in meaningful discussions which had a particular focus on the family of colleges values; Respect, Responsible and Ready, the content of tutorials and mindfulness. The students were able to delve into these core values, exploring their relevance within the community. The feedback from these discussions will play a key role in guiding our future initiatives.

We are already looking forward to next year’s conference as this year’s event has set a strong foundation for ongoing collaboration between students and the college ensuring student voice remains at the heart of what we do.
