Peter McCluskeyMy name is Peter McCluskey and I am a first year BEd (Music) student, and I am running for the position of School of Education Representative. Prior to starting my current course I spent two years on the BMus.

If elected my main aims will be as follows:

  • To address the discrepancies in school placements; from speaking to my course mates it’s clear that not everyone is afforded the same opportunities, with some having regular contact with a subject specialist, allowing for important professional feedback, while others receive little to no contact time.
  • I will look to address the concerns that students have being placed in denominational schools against their wishes, and consult with staff about the possibility of establishing an opt-out choice.
  • Increase dialogue between Education students and the SRC and main campus by establishing a noticeboard in the StAB where I will post updates and put contact details, as well as create a School of Education Facebook page for students of all years and courses to openly discuss concerns with each other, and allow me to collate them to bring to the attention of the SRC and course heads.

Thank you for your time!
