Young Labour supported by Anne Snelgrove attended the Swindon College Freshers’ Fair on Wednesday 7th September.
It was a fantastic event and we met some amazing students studying everything from business Studies to beauty Therapy and Motor Mechanics to Childcare.
So many students are worried now more than ever about the loss of EMA and it’s effect on their ability to buy materials (especially for vocational courses) and pay for transport. With part time jobs in Swindon being so scarce most of the students we spoke to are at a loss as to what the Tory-led government expect them to do in order to stay in education.
We also added many names to Labour’s britain’s Lost Talent petition and got some wonderful feedback from students about what matters to them!
