Bradford College Students Union have called a lobby of Corporation on this Thursday to call for a stop to the cuts. This is a very welcome action by our students, lets support them. Please come and support our students and join the lobby.

Lobby Bradford College Corporation
Thursday 3pm 21st May
Outside David Hockney Building
Lobby our governing body. Urge them to campaign against government cuts and to protect quality education at the college.
Next year academic year, 2015 – 2016, the government plans to cut the English adult further education budget, once funding for apprenticeships is excluded, by 24%. This will leave millions of the most vulnerable adults without access to any opportunity to improve their education or retrain and put thousands of Further Education jobs at risk. Staff and students at the college are calling upon the government not to implement these cuts and to instead invest properly in lifelong learning opportunities for all.
Locally we need corporation to campaign with us and to refuse to implement job cuts and course closures. UCU and Unison members have already been warned of expected redundancies. In order to protect quality education we need to protect jobs.
