Welcoming the award winning BPCSU!
Our UnionCloud FE community now has a new champion with the addition of Bournemouth and Poole College Students’ Union. Their new website went live this summer, and went on to win the Best FE Website 2020 UnionCloud Award.
Bournemouth and Poole College have three sites across the South West with over 20,000 students. Their Students’ Union now has access to the membership engagement functionality within UnionCloud, so staff can manage event bookings, create and share resources, run online elections and more!
We launched their website through lockdown in just 2 months, working closely with their team to ensure students would have a seamless experience. Students can to sign in to the Students’ Union website using the College’s Single Sign On, one less password to remember…
Brian said this about working with us to build their student union website:
Right from the very first meeting about joining UnionCloud the process was simple and easy. Once we signed the contract we were given access to all the information we needed to start building our site.
The platform was also easy to use and to get the content that we needed uploaded and displayed the way we wanted with a drag and drop system. As with anything there are more complicated tasks that need to be completed before going live and if you want your site looking a particular way however the technical support team are always really supportive and give excellent advice at every stage of the process.
I would recommend the UnionCloud platform to any Students’ Union who wants a platform that is easy, value for money and can take their union’s communication with their students to the next level.
Tony Payne, FE Community Manager said:
Bournemouth and Poole College have always blazed a trail as the SU in Further Education; being one of the only unions to have completed the NUS Quality Students’ Union accreditation and win numerous awards.
Having them add UnionCloud to their operations shows how they understand where they can continue to develop their reach and engagement with their students. I am excited to see how the site connects with students and how they use the functionality and toolkits to enhance the student experience.
We’re happy to have you in the community BPCSU, and can’t wait to see what you do with UnionCloud!
