Student Inclusion Consultants

Equality of opportunity for our Northumbria students is a core principle of the University’s work. We are committed to working in partnership with our students to achieve an inclusive experience for all, learning from the ‘experts’ in the current student experience and addressing barriers to student success where these are identified.

Student Equality & Engagement (SEE) schemes offer a variety of opportunities for staff and students to work collaboratively and constructively towards enhancing student success, particularly for our underrepresented students.

The Student Inclusion Team are launching a number of projects over the coming months to engage students across a range of our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion activities. Please see below for more information on how to get involved.

Students

We are pleased to launch recruitment for our Student Equality & Engagement (SEE) schemes for the 2021/22 academic year.

We are recruiting a central pool of Northumbria students who will undertake hourly paid opportunities as Student Inclusion Consultants to work with staff and peers to enhance equality, diversity and inclusion within Northumbria's student experience.

We would like to work with students with lived experience, or a strong understanding, of the barriers that underrepresented students may face whilst at University with an interest in using this to improve the student experience for others.

As a Student Inclusion Consultant you will be able to engage in as many, or as few, of the following opportunities as you would like or that are relevant to you:

 

Student Inclusion Reviews

Work with staff from across the University to review an element of practice to enhance our inclusivity. Examples could include looking at marketing materials, Blackboard sites, Library activities or even recruitment processes for schemes such as this one.

 

Content Development

Develop or review appropriate content with a student inclusion lens. This could be imagery, written or video content that can be used across various platforms.

 

Inclusive Reciprocal Insight Scheme

You could be paired with a University staff member to share your insights and support them in developing their understanding of the current lived student experience of our underrepresented students.

 

Scholarship Opportunities

Work with academic colleagues and contribute to staff development through engaging with relevant literature and providing an evidence-based insight into the current lived experience of our underrepresented students.

 

We are committed to supporting students to successfully engage and contribute to this work across the academic year. We will provide training and support that is relevant to each of the above schemes, as well as developing a sense of community across the network of Student Inclusion Consultants through social and developmental opportunities.

Deadline for student applications is midnight on Sunday 6 February 2022.

Selection events (e.g. interview) will be held week commencing 14 February. Exact dates will be confirmed if your application is shortlisted.

Initial training for successful applicants will take place week commencing 28 February 2022.

Work on all schemes will progress from 21 March 2022.
