Education Crisis

Education Crisis


The ‘Defend Public Education: from cradle to grave’ conference organised by UCU and supported by NUT, NASUWT and NUS is on Saturday 1st February.

This conference will bring together key speakers, practitioners and participants from across the education sector to discuss current policies, along with what members can do to defend the principle of education from cradle to grave in the age of austerity.

Our speakers include Bonnie Greer and Huw Lewis, Minister of Education and Skills in the Welsh Assembly government. The conference will also feature speakers from UCU, NUT, Compass, UnionLearn and the Action for ESOL Campaign. Further details of the agenda along with speakers and workshops is available here.

The conference is free and will be held at the Ambassadors Hotel, Upper Woburn Place, London, WC1H OHX between 10 and 4. Refreshments and a light lunch will be available, but we will be unable to reimburse travel and accommodation expenses for UCU members on this occasion.

We expect this conference to be extremely popular and would urge members to register early to avoid disappointment. The deadline for registration is the 24 January and you can book your place here.

I look forward to receiving your registration form and hope that you will be able to join us on the 1st February.

Best wishes
Martin Whelton
UCU Campaigns & Organising Officer
