How will reforms impact FE members?

Another strong message received from members is to safeguard Further Education representation, as without specific consideration the reforms risk being HE-weighted. For this reason, the proposals retain a VP FE and increase the number of NUS Reps from FE and apprentices. NUS UK and NUS Charity are currently embarking on work to establish and strengthen students’ unions in FE and work-based learners. Through this we hope to develop an understanding of further reforms that may be required and bring these back to conference.
