Campaigning for better investment in colleges and fair pay for college staff.

Further Education (FE) colleges are crucial in driving social mobility and providing the skills to boost local and regional economies. From 2009 to 2019, college funding has been cut by around 30%. Everyone can help by supporting ‘Love our Colleges’ - a campaign for and on behalf of our sector, led by the AoC.



We are calling on the government to...

1. Increase college funding to sustainable level, including but not limited to:

  • Increasing the 16-19 funding rate by 5% a year for the next five years and extending the pupil premium to cover post-16 students
  • Fully funding a National Retraining Scheme to support level 3 to 5 skills
  • Introducing a lifetime learning entitlement to fund skills training for all adults who have not previously achieved a level 3 qualification

2. Provide immediate exceptional funding, ring-fenced for pay, to cover the costs of a fair pay deal for college staff from 2018/19 onwards.
