The Campaign for Education in Brighton & Hove held a very well attended meeting on Post 16 Education only a few weeks ago and heard from sixth form and further education lecturers and managers, academics and researchers and governors about the damage being done to sixth form, further and adult education across the country. Read about this on our Post 16 page. Now one of the largest colleges in the South East is cutting A level programmes, cutting the number of teaching hours students will receive, closing a library and the student counselling service and making experienced staff redundant. These cuts severely undermine post 16 education provision in Sussex.
Teachers at Sussex Downs College are asking us to stand up and support them against these shocking cuts.
Please sign the petition here.
If you can, please email or tweet your support with a message using #sdcstrike and ask everyone to RT – please do this on strike days if you can!
