evaluation and hand this in on the day We look forward to seeing you and welcoming back to YOUR university External Examiner Report Attending this event, I was able to take part in some student workshops and listen to keynote speeches. Most of all though I was privileged to be part of a group of participants, over 100, who had come together for that day as a learning community With disparate partner organisations, the Worcester FdA has some special challenges and, as an EE, I have been increasingly aware of these and, more importantly, the positive response of the staff team and leadership to some of the more knotty protagonists. Perhaps one of the biggest ones is that of participant identity, going as far as possible towards enabling all students to feel part of the Worcester FdA village even though they hardly ever visit it The conference, as I experienced, serves to enable sharing and learning; but more so it gives the opportunity for

people to see their peers, to briefly chat about common ailments as well as benefitsbut to take away a picture and a personal notion about what things are like together and where a future may lie. I think talking to others makes me aware that I am on the same page It is great to be part of such a large student body and exchange ideas.

It has given me topics to talk about in summative assignment Good to meet students from other colleges Keynote speakers amazingly informative I now know

what to do for assignments
