iVoice Presidential Elections
Election Day: 5 June

 Dear students 

I cannot believe that in just a few weeks it will be one year since the second presidential elections for iVoice took place. We have witnessed the inauguration of Eleanor Buxton and Beth Paige as the first ever co-Presidents and the formation of a cabinet that has continued to build upon the hard work of our first President Ellie Baker, by transforming the environment we work in and the way staff and students work together. 

In the next few weeks campaigning will commence, where 8 students from across Thorpe and Frinton Campus will go head to head in their aim of becoming the next President. The role of President should not be taken lightly, it is demanding, however, very rewarding. 

If you are looking to take a leading role in the College, a person who wants to have the opportunity of making an impact on life at TTC for over 1900 student and 300 plus staff or even someone who wants to impress a future employer then please put yourself forward to be a candidate for our election. 

Our President will need to be able to do the following:

  • Act as liaison between the Senior Leadership Team, Governors, students, departments and administration.
  • Attend regularly scheduled meetings with the administration.
  • Identify and suggest projects for iVoice to help improve student life at TTC.
  • Help to set iVoice policies and practices by leading the Executive Committee.
  • Lead an on-going review of the iVoice constitution.
  • Serve as a role model to students and other iVoice members and be open to the needs of all students, staff and parents.
  • Prepare an agenda for every full iVoice meeting.
  • Run, along with the Vice-Principal, full iVoice and site specific iVoice meetings once a half term.
  • Delegate responsibilities to and check in with other iVoice members about the progress of all iVoice activities.
  • Help plan and run iVoice elections.
  • Manage announcements at College assemblies and in the College News Letter.
  • Plan the beginning of the year and mid-year iVoice trips.
  • Attend College functions, for example, Open Evenings and Parents Evenings.

If you are up for a challenge and would love the challenge of being elected, then please write a letter explaining why you feel you would make a great President and outline any ideas that you may have in making TTC a better place for students, staff and our wider community. 

Please send you letter to Mr R Rodd and Miss K Skinner. 

Deadline for submission is Monday 11 May.
