This year, NUS Scotland’s collective priority is Imagine Tomorrow, which is all about re-imagining the type of education system we want to have in Scotland.
The work of Imagine Tomorrow is divided into four streams:
Post-16 learning, teaching and employability
Democratic and ethical institutions
Membership of the group
On Monday 27 October the first ever Imagine Tomorrow Steering Group meeting was held. The group is chaired by NUS Scotland Vice President (Education), Robert Foster. The Steering Group is made up of six elected officers who expressed an interest in the project and were nominated for the role.
The six officers are:
Jack Douglas, Student President, SAUWS
Amy McDermott, Student President, Stirling University Students’ Union
Eire Hawthorne, Vice President Education, Glasgow Kelvin College Students’ Association
Lauren Millar, Depute President, SAUWS
Marc Winsland, President, Dundee and Angus College Students’ Association
James Ferns, Vice President Education, University of Strathclyde Students’ Association
Papers from the meeting
The first meeting set the direction of the programme of work, agreeing priorities within the different streams. Members of the group were really excited about the scope of the work and the opportunity to do things completely different.
Two papers were discussed at the steering group, and the group welcomes comment thoughts and ideas around these issues.
The next Imagine Tomorrow Steering Group will take place in December.
