President - Ben Hoven
"Hey, I'm Ben Hoven, the current President of the Students' Union. After 1 year at another sixth form I transferred to CCN to finish my A Levels in Biology, Psychology and Media Studies. In my time as a student at CCN I grew and matured as a student and a person and made some really good friends. City College Norwich is a diverse, friendly and interesting place that I have enjoyed very much.
As well as the role president, I am also a member of the executive team and am a governor; I am also a member of the Curriculum and Standards, and Business committees. I have the power to bring the student voice to any level of the corporation, so I encourage you to come to the Students’ Union about any issue, concern or feedback so we can work together with the whole college to make positive changes. You can stop by the office, call me at 01603 773077 or email me at Ben.Hoven@ccn.ac.uk"
