Feedback from students is highly valued by ICMP and vital to the continued improvement of our provision.
Putting students at the heart of everything we do, our academic committees include student membership to ensure that students are fully involved in the decision-making process. We also have an established system of Student Reps with a Student Senate led by a Student President and Vice-President.
The post of Student President is central in the Student Voice cycle of ICMP. The president coordinates a range of activities and is invited to attend a range of committees and meetings to ensure the student's voice is present in all relevant discussions. The Student President is supported by the Student Vice-President.
Students Elected 2020/21
By taking on this role, Joy hopes to increase the number of students that feel able to speak out on topics they are concerned about, especially when they feel like nothing can be done. She also wants to encourage ICMP to evidently and openly embrace the differences within the student body. Many things are a lot harder as the year has gone on due to the global situation but she hopes that, even in these current times, we can still band together and do the best we can. Alongside her studies, Joy is working on her own music and growing on her creative journey.
Keegan Israel Yap
Keegan's focus is to be a link between the student body and the academic team at ICMP. He would like to build and provide an accessible student leader body, one that is reliable, effective, and safely comfortable for any student to reach out to. Keegan has taken on this role because, throughout his first year at ICMP, he felt the team of representatives had little to no presence in the school. Many students had no idea what the purpose of this team was, and worse still some students had no idea this team even existed at all. Thus, moving forward, Keegan wants to work with this new team so that it can have the presence and contact points with every individual at ICMP. Outside of ICMP Keegan plays with his new band, and is working on multiple projects with fellow peers from ICMP.
ENVIRONMENT & SUSTAINABILITY OFFICER
Silvia is an Italian singer in her 1st-year of the BMus (Hons) Popular Music Performance degree. She moved from Italy to London to follow her dreams driven by a strong will and filled with hope. Feeling the need of being part of a change, she decided to take charge of the situation in order to make the climate crisis a sensible topic and involve more people to fight our endless war.
EQUALITY, DIVERSITY & INCLUSIVITY OFFICER
Investing in equality, diversity and inclusion is an integral part of ensuring that ICMP is a safe space for all. The diversity of the student body is part of what distinguishes the Institute and is one of ICMP's greatest strengths. Ensuring that underrepresented groups are identified and presented with tailored opportunities means that all students will be able to take full advantage of what the Institute has to offer and hone their craft irrespective of their differences. In fact, I passionately believe that embracing our differences such as ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender, and different abilities will ensure our interconnectedness as an Institute and enable us all to better ourselves as people and as creatives. As the EDI officer, I will contribute to a safer environment for students where inclusivity, equality and celebrating diversity are intrinsic daily practices of the institution.
SOCIETIES & CO-CURRICULAR OFFICER
Jazmine wants to achieve inclusivity among the student body, through events and co-curricular events. She hopes to bridge a sense of community to ICMP by bringing students from different courses together, in the spirit of live music events. And alternative societies will give students the opportunity to engage in fun and inclusive activities outside of lessons. We want people to pitch their ideas for future events so to see what the students want more of. And with our help, students can put on their own events. Alongside her studies, Jazmine is a member of a post-punk band called Fat Dog and is currently working on her own EP. She is also writing a children's novella and hopes to one day have her own screenplay.
