As part of my activity to create business competitions for students, the UWE Bristol Business Case Competition and the South West Business Case Competition, were held at The Students' Union, in November and December 2018. The competitions focused on the theme, ‘UWE’s Sustainability 2030' and involved over 180 people. The event participants included; staff, students, volunteers and a range of businesses.
Private Tutor Platform.
The Private Tutor Platform aims to support students who are struggling with lectures, assignments and exams. It endeavours to achieve this by providing assistance from students with high academic achievements. This is an ongoing project and I am working with stakeholder groups to help offer this service
I have worked with the UWE Bristol Global Centre, to offer scholarships to international students. This will be ready to launch in September 2019 and will aim to offer scholarships to under-represented groups.
Multicultural Week was held between the 18-22 March. The week featured a diverse range of activities, which included:

Food on Campus
I have been working with The Students’ Union Bar to create more diverse food options. Options I have been working to develop include choices for those with medical conditions and those with religious preferences.
