The council for 2023 is headed by two 17-year-old A level students; president Carrie Mills, from Malinslee, and vice president Zak Wardroper, from St Georges.
There are two equality and diversity officers, Arwa Ghazi and Jo Opoku; two environment and health & safety officers, Habiba Mohamed and Grace Page, and two LGBTQ+ officers, Drew Anscombe and Mikey Timmins.
Paige Prosser is healthy lifestyles and welfare officer, Nellia Lunteka is communication and marketing officer, and Eryn McEntagart, Emily Felton, and Eirys Rose Lawson-Broadhead are student council officers.
Shannon Marsh-Lloyd and Karina Saini have been appointed student governors, to represent the student council on the Telford College corporation board.
Carrie said: “I want to make the college as inclusive as possible, in areas such as food and clothing for example – and create an environment where everyone is able to express themselves.”
A-level student Zak added: “I’m looking forward to making sure communication between students, and between staff and students, is strong – something which I know is a common goal for all of us.”
Rosie Baldwin-Jones, Telford College’s enrichment co-ordinator, said: “The student council exists to help share ideas, interests, and concerns with staff and governors. It is a vital link between tutors, curriculum leaders, and students.
“The council also gets involved in a range of enrichment and fundraising activities, and gives all of its members valuable experience in areas such as democracy, and leadership.”
