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.

Our current student team are Sissa, Motwakil, Carol and Kacper however could you or someone you know be our next President or Vice President? It is never too early to have a chat with us!

What do I need to know?

The next election process will take place around March 2021 to elect the team for 2021/22.

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 coming to 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 and continuing to study 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). 

Full election eligibility criteria and job descriptions with hours and pay will be made available from GCCSA in the run up to the election for next academic year.

 

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. Our team will be happy to have a chat with you at any stage about what is involved and how they can support you in advance of the next election. Then we can keep a hold of your details and make sure you are sent on all the required information and documents when the time comes to get ready to run for office.
