What is a manifesto?

 

A Manifesto is a plan of jobs related to things you wish to do whilst in the post and what you would like to improve for the student body at college such as:

 

  • I will ensure more class reps are elected at my campus

  • I will maintain notice boards so that students know what events and trips are planned,

  • I will establish a student parent group,

  • I will ensure that I voice student opinion etc whatever is specific to the role you are applying for, take some time to think about what you would like to achieve, what issues Dudley college/Sixth students are passionate about and what they would like you to campaign on and change.

  • You may not be able to do all of the things in your manifesto but you should aim to do as much as you can to fulfil the pledges you have made.

  • Remember not to promise things that there will be no chance of happening e.g. free trip to Alton Towers for all – the union would not be able to afford it!

 

Try to think about:

 

  • What is important to Dudley College students in terms of their overall college experience 

  • Use clear language and avoid long complicated words – you don’t want to alienate potential voters

  • Make sure that your goals are realistic

 

If your passionate, dedicated and committed don’t hold yourself back, nominate yourself and see what happens!
