UNISON has thousands of members in Further Education colleges.
Hard working staff and students have been hard hit by the Government’s savage spending cuts.
Cuts to FE colleges makes no sense as employers are looking for the very skills that FE colleges are able to provide. However, in the first year of this Tory-led coalition government saw nearly 6,000 redundancies in colleges. This – teamed with more than 60% of colleges cutting courses and falls in admissions all paints a very grim picture for further education services.
