Hull College Students’ Union are a students’ union within the meaning of the Education Act 1994. We act as a voice for our members and are devoted to their educational interests and welfare.
We aim to advance the education of students at the Hull College Group for the public benefit by:
- (a) Promoting the interests and welfare of students at the Hull College Group during their course of study and representing, supporting and advising students;
- (b) Being the recognized representative channel between students and The Hull College Group and any other organisation outside the Hull College Group; and
- (c) Providing social, cultural, sporting and recreational activities and forums for discussions and debate for the personal development of our students.
Charity law gives a wide meaning to education and does not limit it to education by a teacher in a classroom, playground or sports field. This is what we mean by ‘advancing the education of students’ through (a), (b) and (c) in our aims. In addition, we have a code of conduct to ensure we are meeting to the aims in a fair, equal and democratic way.
