Funding For Sixth Form Colleges

EDM number 1675 in 2017-19, proposed by George Howarth on 10/10/2018.

That this House notes with great concern the report by London Economics which highlights the effects of the Government's freeze on sixth form funding combined with increases in running costs; further notes that in order to increase student services for physical and mental health, protect minority subjects such as modern languages from being dropped and increase extra­curricular activities such as work experience and university visits the report states that sixth form colleges will need an increase in funding of at least £760 per student by 2020-21; expresses deep regret that funding declined by 22 per cent during the period between 2010-11 and 2016-17, resulting in a decrease in teaching staff of 15 per cent while in the same period student numbers have increased by six per cent; and calls on the Government to address this unacceptable funding problem as a matter of urgency.

This motion has been signed by a total of 22 MPs.
