    I believe that learner voice should be bring all groups of students together, however this can be difficult because of judgemental attitudes from others.

    I think it is important for student union and involvement officers of college should planning more events, training and workshop to allow the different group to build relationship to improve the learning environment for students.

    It is important to promote equality amongst all students.
