Student Notices 12th Oct

  1. 1. Weekly Student Notices 12th October 2009
  2. 2. Respect Your Student Cafe Recently the student cafe has become more and more untidy as the volume of students making use of the facility has increased. Confetti would like to remind you of your duties to ‘be professional’ and for you to make sure that you tidy away your litter before you leave the cafe, using the bins provided. Stray food, drinks wrappers and other mess make the room look and smell unclean; please respect your fellow students by clearing up your own litter before moving on to your next class.
  3. 3. Delay in receiving EMA payments EMA payments will be delayed by up to four weeks. This is due to delays processing enrolment paperwork at Castle College. Please see EST if this is going to cause any problems for you financially. Please note that you will receive back dated payments for all weeks that you have attended
  4. 4.     Confetti Library- Open for Business Confetti welcomes you to begin making the most of our funky new library space  behind reception on the ground floor.  Feel free to pop in to browse the book, CD,  DVD and magazine collection.    Before making a loan, be sure you’re registered by completing the library registration  cards given to you by your tutor and have your selection booked out correctly by the  tutor in the LRC. Alternatively, a member of EST will be able to assist you.  Your  library number will be the same as your Castle College student number so be sure to  remember what it is as this will also give you access to the library facilities on any  Castle College campus.  library membership cardX4 (2).pub

  6. 6. Student Cards At enrolment you will all have been issued with a new Confetti card, lanyard and holder  – you will need to make sure you are wearing it visibly at all times whilst on site. It is also  a fire safety requirement that you use it to log in and out of the building. For security purposes, any member of staff may ask to see your Confetti card at any  time. If you cannot produce your ID, you will be asked to leave the premises. Your card  is your responsibility; lost or stolen cards can be replaced at EST, but you will need to  pay for this service.    
  7. 7. New Selection of Food Available Over the coming weeks and months students at Confetti will be able to benefit from the new catering services offered in Antenna. A selection of reasonably priced and healthy sandwiches, rolls and salads are being made from fresh by our own team of Chefs and sold in our vending machines. We are also working on a scheme to allow access to hot food in the near future, as has been requested by many of you in feedback questionnaires. Watch this space for developments!
  8. 8. Student Reps will need to be chosen by each group very soon. When making your selection make sure you are confident they will attend meetings regularly and be able to speak for your group confidently and without bias. The Role and Commitment of a Student Rep: Student Reps will need to attend an away day in October to complete training. This is essential to ensure you get the most out of the role and represent your group effectively. Student Reps from every course meet each term to discuss the quality of Confetti’s services and provide feedback to help us improve. Further responsibility can be opted for to attend Confetti Education Managers meetings, where you get the opportunity to provide valuable insights into the views of your peers and help to shape decisions that are made about our provision. Being a Student Rep looks great on CV’s and UCAS applications! Whatever level you are involved at being a Student Representative at Confetti is an interesting insight to the workings of Creative Industries.
