Colleges and universities need to ensure they have proper plans in place to deal with the Covid threat warned the University and College Union (UCU) today (Wednesday). UCU has launched a new system to allow members to relay their fears about institutions’ failings directly to the union.
The University and College Union (@UCU) says Prime Minister @BorisJohnson should be working to prevent unnecessary Covid outbreaks, not creating the conditions for them, and said that the Prime Minister’s plan to force students to stay in their university town or city in the event of a future lockdown was “ridiculously irresponsible”.
@DrJoGrady @ucu comments on COVID in higher education, findings from @IndependentSage
The University and College Union said that the government needed to listen to the findings in the report on Covid in higher education its Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) published on Friday 4th September 2020.
Reacting to this year’s GCSE results and the postponement of BTEC grades the University and Colleges Union (UCU) said that the chaos has harmed students, and that we now need to see a big increase in funding for further education, as well as an end to privatisation, so colleges can play a big role in our national recovery and make sure no student is left behind.
