The local UCU committee of Nottingham University will hold an Open Forum of Further and Higher Education institutions in the wider area of Nottingham. The purpose of this event is twofold. First, we intend to debate the wider implications of cut-backs to education in the UK, facilitated by a short input by one of our colleagues. Second, we would like to bring together representatives and speakers from trade unions as well as student groups representing various further education colleges and universities in the local area. These representatives will provide brief three to five minutes inputs about the specific challenges they face in their particular institution as well as reflect on possible joint strategies at the local and regional level. Ideally this will result in a broader network with the objective to ensure that resistance activities are co-ordinated across further and higher education institutions across the region.
It’s going to be on the 26th January at Nottingham Uni, Portland Building C11 1pm-3pm.
