Election Candidate Disqualification Announcement: 6 March 2020
A spokesperson for The Students’ Union at UWE commented:
"Following a full investigation into complaints made against Ayrden Pocock, VP Education, the process has been completed."
"No evidence was found to support that Ayrden intentionally, or unintentionally, released confidential documents that could have the potential to negatively impact The Students’ Union or breach our internal policies and procedures."
"While it was agreed that Ayrden did display behaviours falling below our expected professional standards in a subsequent incident, which cannot be condoned, it was concluded that no disciplinary action should be taken due to mitigating circumstances."
"In line with standard procedures following any investigation, we will look to review and improve any internal processes or practices for the benefit of the organisation and our student community."
