So, we’re into week 2 of this involver experiment. I’m feeling a little more confident about saying what we’re going to be doing now – and about letting people know what happened to School Councils UK (SCUK).
It’s now set who the team is going to be. It’s me and Greg, a great former colleague of mine at SCUK and also a former member of the Citizenship and PSHE Team at the DCSF. Whilst we think we’re pretty good on all the school council and student involvement stuff, we’re aware we don’t know it all, so the last week has been about us setting up meetings with a range of people in the field and we’ll also be setting up an advisory group (or groups) to guide us on an ongoing basis.
So far the response has been very positive and there’s been a lot of help available from a variety of sources, all of which will be listed on our Partners & Supporters page.
Here are some of our initial scribblings – just to prove that we’ve actually been doing something:
The other way you can see that we’ve actually been doing stuff, is by how this website’s developing. Although that said, a lot of what I’m doing at the moment seems to be a bit more behind the scenes stuff, making the search effective and stuff. Well, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
