As it’s the start of a new Term, here’s an update on all the great stuff that has been achieved as part of our Priority Campaign – Defend Education.
The other Sabbs and I have done lots of fab stuff although much of it has been behind-the-scenes so we thought we’d tell you all about it!
So, at the start of the year, we set out what we wanted:
Our GTAs to get fair pay and fair treatment
More support for international students
Proper feedback on our work
A higher education system that is fully and publicly funded
And here is a summary of what we’ve achieved:
More course reps than ever engaging and influencing the School.
Expansion of Teaching awards.
Most successful Education Assembly ever.
Joint lobbying of senior MPs about treatment of international students.
Support for refugees and asylum seekers getting equal access to education at LSE in conjunction with STAR’s Equal Access campaign.
