Hey guys, so my name's Charles Isherwood and I’m the Students’ Union President. My role in a nutshell is to be “The Figurehead of the Union” in other words there will a lot of pictures of me around campus, (sorry in advance), but it also means I sit on a lot of meetings making sure that the student voice is being heard. I’m also the Chair of our Trustee who are the people who are overall responsible for the Union. I also lead on academic matters within the Union, including the Course Rep system which has around 150 course reps. So yeah lots to do no Biggy J  


What do you hope to achieve in your role? 

I’m most excited to be working alongside Jake to get loads of stuff done for our students at LTU, but if I had to choose something it would be getting my 'cut the costs' campaign running and helping to put some money back in our student pockets.  


Any top tips for LTU students? 

    1. Get Stuck in! Get involved in as much as possible and go make some memories.

    2. Not sure how to do something? Then YouTube will be your best friend, I’ve always found that using Google and YouTube is so useful for learning new stuff.

    3. ASK FOR HELP! This tip is probably one that I most struggled with but it is vital when in a new environment.


Anything else you'd like to say?

  1. I'm always here for any students who need my help. Or if you see me walking around then just say 'Hey'. Finally have a great time at Leeds Trinity University and if there is anything I can do to help you, then let me know.
