Love Our Colleges 13/19

Colleges Week 2019 - a round up

We're still totting up numbers from last week's activity but I wanted to share a few highlights with you:

  • 4,345 visits to the Love Our Colleges website
  • 5 articles written by MPs or Peers on college funding, since September
  • A range of media coverage including The Guardian, iNews and BBC Essex
  • #LoveOurColleges was the most tweeted hashtag by Labour MPs on 16 October

With so many other political distractions, I'm pleased with the pick-up last week and I hope you are too. The focus now needs to be on maintaining campaign momentum for the November Budget and the longer-term Spending Review next year.


Autumn Budget - 6 November

I've already mentioned that the date of the budget has been announced. We've already see funding announcements around base rate funding and pensions but there might be scope for something further to be said on adult education.

You can still use the pledge cards to influence your local MP by highlighting how much local support there is for the Love Our Colleges campaign asks - all of the materials can still be found on the resource hub.
