The University is committed to working in partnership with students. In 2020 the University worked with students to co-create its Students as Partners Framework (SaP). The SaP provides case studies and examples of how staff can work with students in partnership and how this can be embedded into life at London Met.
Going one step further than the work of the SaP, in 2021 the University worked in partnership with the Students’ Union and other stakeholders to develop London Met’s first ever Student Partnership Agreement (SPA). This project recognises a cultural step change as we move closer to best practice approaches in authentic partnership working.
The SPA is a key document that will help all stakeholders understand the approach we wish to take, ensuring everyone enters into the process of partnership with the commitment to act in good faith. The SPA also allows us to have a frame of reference to evaluate what good partnership looks like so that we have a shared language and understanding. The SPA covers the values and principles that we wish to embed in all aspects to improve the student experience and further embedding co-creation at London Met and ensuring that the Students’ Union, students and institution can be critical friends.
