Further Education Friday

The campaign picked up traction each week and in July 2019, there was a lot going on.

Leadership contender, Boris Johnson MP, used his weekly newspaper article to pledge to boost FE funding & apprenticeships ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

The amazing Rt Hon Robert Halfon MP, Education Select Committee chair, has just backed my campaign – all in the week that he has launched an enquiry into lifelong learning. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ (link & see what he said about local provision below).

I will keep up the fight. It is an easy job to talk to people about SGS Stroud & the work our students do. I believe more local funding will make a difference to our communities ๐Ÿ™

TES article – Local provision:

Mr Halfon stressed the importance of local provision, and Ms Cain agreed. She said the WEA welcomed the Augar proposal for a national education network, and that local delivery was crucial.

โ€œPeople need something nearby and so theyโ€™re encouraged to get involved with their peers through short courses that are around,โ€ she said.
