Our Mission Statement;

'To work democratically so that all learners have an equal say in decisions that affect their college life, and to advocate on behalf of those learners to represent their interests and views and promote and protect their welfare.

To organise and encourage learners to participate in events and fundraising by offering equal opportunities for all and engaging learners in a fun and inclusive way’

Our Strategic Aims;

Learner Voice

Representing the learners of Barnsley College is at the core of what we do and we are determined to strengthen our activity and impact by engaging an ever wider range of learners ensuring that we are relevant to the needs of all those we represent.

Learner Rights

We will promote and protect the rights of learners to access the personal and study support that they require to get the most out of their education. We will campaign for, and on behalf of, the rights of our learners.

Learner Opportunities and Employability

We will provide opportunities for learners to develop their employability skills by providing relevant and appropriate volunteering opportunities in your local community. We are committed to learners gaining essential work skills and provide a dedicated E2L scheme to support learners with this.

Learner Democracy

We will provide a democratic decision making structure that enables learners to develop their citizenship qualities. We aim to encourage a more diverse and inclusive Student Union committee membership that is truly representative of our student population.
