Student Elections

Every year four students (one full time president and three part time vice presidents) are voted in by the student body and are then PAID TO WORK for GCCSA by taking up a role of leading the Student Association and representing its student members and raising the profile of GCCSA. Could you or someone you know be our next President or Vice President? 

What do I need to know?

Any student currently matriculated at Glasgow Clyde College in the UK and actively pursuing studies towards a qualification is eligible to stand for office.

Please note that the President is a FULL TIME role and therefore is suitable for either a student at the end of their studies at Glasgow Clyde College prior to heading on to future studies or employment, or a student who chooses to take a gap year from their studies at Glasgow Clyde College to commit to this position. The Vice President(s) are PART TIME roles and are therefore suitable for students who are currently studying at Glasgow Clyde College but can commit to working part time within this position (hours will be scheduled around class timetable and are agreed between officers and staff once successful).

The full job descriptions with hours and pay are available from GCCSA. 


What do I need to do?

If you are interested in becoming our next President or Vice President then get in touch with GCCSA directly or pass this information on to others interested. You will be required to share you details with us in an ‘Expression of Interest’ form.  After you have returned this form to GCCSA, you will be sent on all the required documents and will have direct contact with the Development Officer of GCCSA who will support you throughout the process.

As this is not a standard job interview process and rather an election where you require your fellow students to vote you into the role, you will be required to campaign. Don’t worry you will be sent a pack which will help to explain the full process and should inform you of everything you need to know. However, you are not in this alone so please email jmcnair@glasgowclyde.ac.uk or gccsa@glasgowclyde.ac.uk at any time if you are unsure or have any questions!
