Learner Voice

Learner Voice

At Learning for Life we understand that disability is a right not a fight. That’s why we have implemented the Learner Voice Strategy throughout all aspects of the curriculum and learning journey. Our strategy develops holistic, inclusive participation of learners to improve personal achievement and outcomes. Learner participation is about developing and fostering a culture where our learners have a voice and have the opportunity to play an active role in decision making, planning and reviewing any action that might affect their learning and well-being, having a voice and having a choice.

We have elected our very own Student Council at Learning for Life as we recognise that this is an essential part in bridging communication gaps and overcoming social boundaries. A Student Ambassador has been selected and they have an active role in ensuring that their fellow students whether they are verbal or non-verbal, have their voice heard. All Council members get to wear a badge so that all learners can see who their representatives are. This enables the learners to have increased opportunities to develop their personal and social skills and to have those skills recognised.

A link between the Student Council and members of the staff communication team has been created to ensure that not only is communication streamlined throughout the College, but to ensure that the Learner’s Voice extends beyond the boundaries of the College and out in to the wider community itself.
