Have a heart for the Milestone community? Like standing up for others? Want to organise fun events for your Year Group? If your answer to any of these question is yes, then the Student Council is for you.
You have until the 5th of June to become your Year Group’s representative as Welfare or Social Officer. Let your voice be heard and form the face of Milestone in the Academic Year of 2018/19!
Students from all backgrounds and experience are encouraged to apply. It is possible to apply for the Social Officer position in pairs. Applications are allowed for both positions but please fill out a separate application form for both with the indication of primary choice.
The Welfare Officer acts as a point of contact for fellow Year Group members to air their views to the Academic Team on issues like diversity in module choice, mentoring quality, teaching methods, Student Life and general matters related to Milestone. They act as a first point of contact for students who would rather discuss such matters with a peer rather than a member of staff. The Welfare Officer provides a platform for his/her peers to voice concerns online or in person, feeds back to the Student Life Coordinator and attends one termly meeting with the Deputy Head of House where they can present the feedback. The Welfare Officer is also encouraged to help the Social Officers in organising events.
The Social Officer is in charge of bringing the Year Group together and contributing to forming the Milestone community. He/She must organise at least one social per term and also advertise these events within the Year Group, using Social Media and other creative tools such as videos and posters. He/She is also encouraged to organise Socials for all students for special occasions such as Halloween, Christmas or Burns Night and liaise with the Student Organisations to organise bigger events and running Milestone community events such as ‘ arts @ milestone ‘ projects.
