Love is in the air as campaign gains momentum
A heartfelt message from staff and students is being sent to the government this week as Havering Sixth Form College embarks on a week of action to support the #LoveOurColleges campaign.
The campaign, spearheaded by the Association of Colleges (AoC), aims to persuade the Treasury to provide meaningful and sustainable investment in colleges across the country.
Beginning Monday, 13th May and ending on Friday 17th May, the week - more details can be found at https://www.loveourcolleges.co.uk/ - will raise awareness of the fact that over the last decade, colleges have had to deal with an average 30% funding cut, whilst costs have increased dramatically.
This has resulted in finances being strained and fewer hours of teaching and support for young people. It will ultimately impact upon businesses, communities and the wider economy.
