Did you know?

Colleges and college staff transform lives – they help people make the most of their talents and ambitions and drive social mobility; they help businesses improve productivityand drive economic growth; they are rooted in and committed to their communitiesand drive tolerance and well-being. They are an essential part of England’s education system – educating and training 2.2 millionpeople every year.

Why is this important?

Over the last decade, colleges have had to deal with an average 30% funding cut, whilst costs have increased dramatically. This has resulted in a drastic drop in learning opportunities for adults, fewer hours of teaching and support for young people, and teacher pay at less than 80% of schools and support staff seeing no increase in pay for several years. This situation is not sustainable and ultimately impacts upon students, businesses, communities and the wider economy.
