Funding cuts: lobby of parliament

In response to funding cuts in further, higher and adult education, UCU organised a mass lobby of parliament on 2 April 2014.

Our thanks to the hundreds of UCU members who attended the lobby on 2nd April.

It was a busy and successful event, with members securing meetings with their MPs to put forward the case for investment in post-16 education.

UCU general secretary Sally Hunt wrote a piece for the Times Education Supplement to coincide with the lobby which outlined how vital public funding is to the UK education system.
