National Student Engagement Programme

National Student Engagement Programme

NstEP aims to strengthen student engagement in decision-making across Irish higher education, supported by a framework of 10 Principles and 4 Domains (HEA,2016). The Programme seeks to champion a strong culture of partnership between students and staff through practice-based projects, training and capacity building, as well as informing policy developments. Student engagement is underpinned by the idea that students are partners and co-creators within a learning community, and NstEP aims to actively embed these principles within higher education. Involvement in NstEP requires a partnership between HEI staff and student representatives, with HEI leadership and Students’ Union leadership signing partnership agreements to participate.

Student Voice

Student Voice

We believe that since schools are the first civic institution many young people interact with as stakeholders, they should teach students how to meaningfully engage in the democratic process. Through direct civic action, students should have a more powerful voice to combat educational inequity. We envision an education system where students and adults work as partners to create meaningful change in their schools and communities. Through committed youth-adult partnerships, we cultivate a shared commitment to creating more equitable social outcomes.
