The SSLC is organised and chaired by students, but academic staff are members of the committee. The student chair and secretary are always invited to the department’s staff meeting to provide a report on the issues that have been discussed. This ensures that all the academic staff members are aware of the concerns and can discuss ways of addressing these, if it is appropriate. At the end of the year, the department’s SSLC writes an annual report which is sent to the Teaching Quality department of the University where it is considered alongside all the other reports, so that the University as a whole is informed of the issues that concern our students.

The SSLC will not discuss personal problems nor will it discuss complaints about individual members of staff.

Your SSLC representatives will tell you much more about the SSLC. There is an SSLC notice board located between rooms H536 and H538 in the English Department.
