Our Council

 

Council Member - Stephen Nicholls

I was a Welsh Office/Government civil servant before retirement, latterly dealing with further and higher education student finance/university governance.

I always strove to ensure fair treatment of students - retention of Education Maintenance Allowances for Welsh domiciles, Student Loans Company recognition for a Credit Union helping a vulnerable student, and 'reasonable adjustments' being made to cater for disabled students.

The importance of adult education first became apparent to me in the 1970s when my father was given a retraining grant following the closure of East Moors steelworks, Cardiff. He achieved 4 'O' levels, with a positive effect on his self-esteem.

I spent two years in the 1980s as part-time adult education lecturer in human biology at St Cyres School, Penarth, gaining great satisfaction when some learners entered and passed the associated 'O' level.
