Student as Producer linked to the student experience: offering our students a variety of opportunities to participate, shape and lead in our HE Community via the Student Leaders Programme. This programme includes Student Fellowships, Student Ambassadors, Peer Mentors, Student Representatives, and those with a role in our Students’ Union.
‘I believe that my role as a student fellow has definitely improved my employability skills due to the amount of opportunities I have had to engage with industry organisations through events and communication.’ – Gemma Keen, BA (Hons) Travel and Tourism Management.
‘Although my fellowship was based around the gym, the role opened doors for me in other departments. […] I presented my dissertation at the Posters in Parliament event and the British Conference of Undergraduate Research in Sheffield. I also presented at the HE Sports Conference and HE Student Conference, both on campus. Not only did these events help build my confidence, it was beneficial to discuss my topic in a variety of environments. I also feel my research and presentation skills have improved.’ – Hannah Stuart, BA (Hons) Sport and Exercise Rehabilitation
