The Student Council is looking for new members.
Are you motivated to bring change to the school?
Do you want to learn how to make collective decisions?
Are you excited about supporting students' projects?
Do you have ideas to strengthen our community?
You can become a part of the student-led body of Rietveld and Sandberg.
This is a paid position at the working student rate of scale 1, the contract is for 8 hours a week. We meet once a week for two hours, the other hours are spread throughout the week depending on the projects/working groups you’re participating in. The contract will last until the end of 2024, with a possibility of extension of up-to around a year . For non-EU students, we will apply for a work permit that allows you to have a contract at school.
The Student Council aims to be a bridge and a connective tissue between the divergent parts of the school. Its roles include listening to student voices and putting forward student-centered ideas, supporting community-oriented student-led projects through funding, and developing democratic structures, created for and by students.
What will you be doing?
The focus of the Student Council is to address concerns and issues that students find important that are not (yet) sufficiently considered in the school’s organization and community. What does that mean? It means you will be supporting student initiatives, writing open calls, following up with people, planning, organizing, supervising, attending meetings, writing agendas and minutes, scheduling, connecting, checking in and archiving.
Here are some examples of what took place during the last years:
