Peter Aldous calls for a change in mind-set on college funding

21st January 2019

Speaking in a debate on college funding, Peter Aldous highlights the importance of colleges as a vital link from education to the workplace and in improving social mobility and calls for a change in mind-set with regard to how we fund post-16 education.

The hon. Gentleman just made an interesting point, but in coastal communities such as the one that I represent, which includes Lowestoft Sixth Form College and East Coast College, colleges are vital for the link from education to the workplace and in improving social mobility. We probably need a change in mind-set in this country with regard to how we fund post-16 education.

The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right. Only a few days ago we were discussing that in the east of England all-party parliamentary group. Would it not be wonderful if we could have cross-party consensus on this kind of change?
