Social Norms Survey

Somerset College is working with Somerset County Council on running a project about Social Norms issues and raising the awareness of students at the college about the understanding around the various issues of drinking, drugs, smoking and sexual health. The survey was carried out at the Freshers' Fair and asked students a number of questions relating to the various issues so that we could establish what the students level of understanding was. The college now intends to run a number of awareness raising events to provide students with the facts around the issues and will run a second survey at the end of the year to see if the students understanding has changed.

All students who took part in the survey had their names put in a draw to win an iPad Mini. Congratulations to Aiden Miles who was presented his prize this week by the College's Health and Safety Officer Jon Peters.
