  • Re-instate Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) in England to enable students to better access further education
  • Re-instate child benefit for students in further education and apprenticeships
  • Re-kindle the value of education in society


  • Treat teachers as professionals. Increase teacher salaries (wages have been reduced by 16% since 2010)
  • Schools and further education colleges not to be run as businesses
  • In pre-school / early years education - if teaching staff with degrees are required then their salary should reflect this
  • Bring back Surestart
  • In higher education - scrapping tuition fees is a good move but maintenance is also stopping middle income students from attending and applying for places
  • Give vocational education a greater focus making it equal value to academic education

Referring to: Early Years, Education and Skills

The Early Years, Education and Skills Policy Commission looks at issues relating to children’s wellbeing, development and care, as well as education training and skills from childhood through adulthood.
