What is a Values Champion?

The Values Champions support the rollout and embedding of the College Values and Behaviours; meeting for an hour each month.

Raising awareness of culture and Values in their areas, they provide ideas and feedback on Values-related development sessions and communication plans; and reflect the needs and experience of teams on the ground.

If you are interested in becoming a Values Champion and playing an active role in shaping culture across the College, get in touch with the POD team.
