The Learning Connexion has two main governance groups which deal with decision-making. The task of these groups is to help the organisation make the best use of its collective energy. Student Link representatives are invited to attend regular meetings of the Academic Boards. You can find meeting minutes relevant to students next to Reception in the foyer.
The Academic Board
The Academic Board has the most direct involvement with students. It has the responsibility for the overall management of delivery of programmes. The Academic Board includes the Managing Director (or his delegate) and a representative range of academic and support staff. The Academic Board meets every Wednesday at 10.30am in the Meeting Room, 3rd Floor, Taylor Building. email@example.com
The Academic Board has overall responsibility for:
- The quality of TLC teaching and learning activities
- The quality of TLC assessment and moderation
- Confirming RPL decisions
- Hearing appeals against the application of TLC assessments
The Operations group functions to oversee daily business needs plus expenditure. To facilitate the operational aspects of approved items from Strategy.
Working Groups include:
- Health & Safety Group
- MRP/Marketing/Business Development

The Strategy group deals with all ‘Big picture’ strategic planning. It also deals with any proposal that is new to our organisation or requires large expenditure.
Engaging with the Governance Structure
Students can have a say in what happens here at TLC by engaging with the Academic Board.
There are a number of ways to do this:
- Pass on comments or suggestions to the Student Link representative who will bring it to the meeting. DD students can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Write a proposal (form available through Programme Support or Reception) and send it to the Academic Board, depending on which area it relates to
- Write comments in one of the onsite student comment books. The Student Link representatives bring these comments to the board meetings
- Speak with Programme Support or your mentor
- Write your request or comment on your feedback forms
