FE colleges are hard hit

If the cost of a pint of Milk had increased in the same manner as tuition fees then you’d be paying over £1 for a pint of milk, says Alan Whittaker from UCU.

“We need to remember, those of us studying in FE colleges are being hit really hard. Because Fe is being progressively underfunded by this and previous governments. They are set to lose the EMA (education maintenaince allowence), which makes all the difference between them being able to afford courses at colleges and not being able to afford courses,” he said.
