Janine Braithwaite, VP Education


A little bit about me

I’m a Public Health graduate and I was inspired to run for the Education Officer position due to my time as the School Rep for CNMH. Being a Rep was 100% the best thing I did during my time as a student! The change I was able to create became my main motivation for running in the sabb election as I saw that there is so much you can transform and the possibilities are endless.

Manifesto aims

I will be working on tackling the BAME attainment gap, teaching quality at UWL and breaking down the access barriers for mature students and students with caring responsibilities.

What I’m hoping to achieve this year

As your re-elected VP Education, I have been and will continue to represent every last student here at UWL. All students need to feel a part of our diverse family here at UWL. This year, I want to reduce the barriers that prevent people from feeling like they are a part of the UWL community, I’m a mother and a recent mature graduate but I’m also currently a masters student alongside my VP role so I’m on this journey with you all!

What I love about UWLSU

The culture at UWLSU is incredible! Our team is nurturing and caring and I love how committed we are to ensuring students love their time at UWL. Together, we are dedicated to creating long lasting change for the benefit of our members.
