  • Annual careers pathway, Higher Education and employment fairs
  • Curriculum led events throughout the year

Student Union

The Windsor Forest Colleges Group supports students to be successful and we work hard to listen to student views about their experiences. We always encourage feedback. One of the ways we do that is through our Student Parliaments, Liaison Committees and Student Union. Most College tutor or curriculum groups have an elected group representative.

These reps make up the Student Parliament and are responsible for representing the views of their class on a range of topics including teaching and learning, campus services and college life. The Course Reps also attend regular meetings to discuss their feedback and ideas with the College’s senior management team.


The Windsor Forest Colleges Group is proud to say we run an LGBTQ+ Group that is open to all LGBTQ+ students and allies across all three sites! We run every Wednesday over Google Meet and have exciting plans for the coming year. We strive to be a very open space for all to enjoy.

No matter what you feel like, you are still a person and we are a group of students and staff happy to listen and help you to be better equipped for college. With external speakers and events lined up such as February Pride week, we welcome LGBTQ+ and their allies to join our friendly community.
