Love Our Colleges

This morning we welcomed Riikka Vihriala of New City College to our studio, where she passionately shared stories about the contribution colleges make to the UK, as well as the significant challenges that these further education institutions are currently facing.

 

Today, Riikka will march alongside fellow staff and students from New City College from Pall Mall to Westminster to mark Colleges Week, a campaign organised by the Association of Colleges to raise the profile of further education and persuade the government to redress eight years of underfunding. Further education colleges are an essential part of England’s education system, yet over the last decade, college funding has been cut by around 30%.

 

Studio Egret West wholeheartedly supports the contributions and endeavours of our country’s colleges, and the teachers and students that make up these vital institutions. #LoveOurColleges

 

Please take the time to sign the below petition for fair college funding.
