Love Our Colleges: march, rally and lobby for FE funding

17 October 2018 2:30pm–7:30pm

Waterloo Place, London, SW1Y 4

Colleges are important – to their students, their staff and their local communities. But for too long the vital work they do has been overlooked and underfunded. This situation is not sustainable and ultimately impacts on college students and staff, businesses, communities and the wider economy.

That is why trade unions, students and colleges are coming together to call for better funding and fair pay for further education colleges.

Come and join us for national action in London on Wednesday 17 October. The day will include:

March for further education
March will depart 12.30pm from Waterloo Place, finishing at Parliament Square.

#loveourcolleges rally
Join us from 1.30 – 2.30pm in Parliament Square to hear from a range of speakers about why we #loveourcolleges and want the government to invest more in further education.

Mass lobby of Parliament 
Visit your MP in Parliament on the day and ask them to #loveourcolleges and support fair funding and better pay in further education. Please contact your MP as soon as possible in advance of the day to arrange a meeting – you may wish to talk to colleagues and students about arranging a group meeting on the day.
