New Student Union Presidents elected for 2023/24

Grŵp Llandrillo Menai’s new Student Union Presidents have been elected ahead of the 2023/24 academic year.

The new representatives will help give students a voice and will work to enrich the college experience for their fellow learners.

Kyra Wilkinson and Claire Bailey will share the role of Student Union President for Coleg Llandrillo, while Jason Scott will represent Coleg Menai, and Kayleigh Griffiths has been elected to the role for Higher Education.

The Grŵp is still recruiting for the role of Coleg Meirion Dwyfor Student Union President. Anyone interested is urged to contact email by the end of September.

Kyra and Claire are both on the Level 3 Health & Social Care course at Coleg Llandrillo’s Rhos campus.

Kyra said: “I’m excited to work with all the students of Coleg Llandrillo and my focus will be on inclusivity and wellbeing.”

Claire added: “My aim is to uphold the voice and the rights of all the students in the college.”

As well as sharing the role of SU President, Kyra and Claire will also help support their fellow learners as wellbeing ambassadors.

Jason, who studies Level 3 Mechanical Engineering, said: “I’m going to enjoy being Student Union president for Coleg Menai. It’s good for students to be able to have their voice out there and be able to change things about the organisation that they’re part of.”

Kayleigh Griffiths studies Level 6 Business Management at Rhos, and said: “My focus is to communicate effectively with HE learners at the colleges and campuses to encourage student engagement.”

Student Enrichment Officer Aaron Beacher said: “I would like to congratulate Kyra, Claire, Jason and Kayleigh on becoming successful in obtaining their posts for the 2023/2024 academic year.

“We would like to thank all the applications who put themselves forward for these roles.

“Those candidates who were not successful this time are being encouraged to participate in voluntary roles within the Student Union to support the Presidents, where they will be a great asset.”

Grŵp Llandrillo Menai will also be recruiting soon for class representatives, who are a vital part of the organisation. Class representatives communicate directly with the Student Union team and attend Learner Voice Panels to ensure learners contribute positively to the ongoing development of their course, campus and overall college experience.
