Vote and submit ideas!

The Ideas System is simple way for students to submit ideas and vote on ideas from other students. If it's something simple, we will look into it straight away and see if it can be acheived. If it needs more resource and student support, it needs 20 positive votes to go to Student Council. Here it can be voted on as policy and change can be campaigned for! Click here for more information and previous ideas.

To rate an idea that has already been submitted, simply select thumbs up or thumbs down to indicate whether you like the idea or not. That's how simple our system is! You can also add comments to ideas and start a discussion with your fellow students.

If you have any queries regarding the ideas system, please email su-council@le.ac.uk

Please note: Once an idea is submitted, it has 2 weeks to reach the 20 positive votes needed. Ideas will automatically go down after 6 months.

    Pay Part-time Officers

    Current
      I don't know if this has been raised before, but I find it quite shocking that the Part-time Officers, who do so much work for students and the SU, don't get paid. I'm aware that they get a £300 bonus if they 'do a good job' (not sure what constitutes this or who decides it?) but considering Guest Speakers get paid around £300 for just an hour's work this hardly seems like a fair amount to pay for a whole academic year's worth of work. The Part-time Officers are invaluable and often take on big jobs such as planning LGBTQ+ History month or Black History month events, and running their own campaigns, and I think not paying them is wrong and just perpetuates the unethical use of students for free labour.
