Education is under attack like never before. FE colleges have closed, jobs have been lost and students are being forced deeper and deeper into debt by a government happy to see companies making profit off the back of student poverty. It’s time to take a stand.
At National Conference in April, our members told us enough is enough.
So on 19 November, we will be joining the University & College Union (UCU) to march in central London under the banner of United for Education and demand free, good quality further and higher education, accessible to all.
To help you mobilise and take part in this powerful movement of students and staff, we will be staying in regular touch with information and resources and answering your questions.
Keep an eye on this page as we bring you up-to-date news, events and materials.
We have answered some FAQs here and you can get the event in your Facebook calendars here. Essential logistical information for the day is available here and legal advice from Green and Black Cross around arrests and stop and search can be found here. Further information around legal advice, including know your rIghts training and legal observer training can be found here.
