Video of UCU NEC Mark Campbell’s speech at the London Region Rally called by UCU, UNISON and UNITE.
The management and board of governors of Lambeth College are planning to sell off the Brixton Centre to property developers.
The Brixton centre runs courses for students with learning difficulties and disabilities, for young people who need a second chance at education and for English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) students who need English to improve their lives.
These courses are essential for the community of Brixton and for the borough of Lambeth, where many people are in low-paid jobs, are unemployed or don’t speak English and desperately need education to improve their situation.
Please join the campaign to stop education attacks and stop the sell-off of the Brixton Centre of Lambeth College.
Youth Employment is now over 1 million. 60% of young black men are unemployed – so why are FE colleges being sold off?
Stop the Sell-Off – Join the Campaign – Brixton Needs a College!

This training event is targeted at London Region Branch and Local Association reps who are either new or already engaged in case work within a London college or university at either individual and collective level.
London Region UCU are hosting this event in response to increasing demand for case workers at local level and increasing demands on the time and capacity of local case workers.
Experienced activists from London Region will be present at ALL sessions, but part of the aim of the event is for YOU to share your local experience with other UCU officers. The aim of this event is anything but ‘top down’. We will aim to collate feedback from the afternoon session on collective issues and use this as the basis for future events and for further related work developed within London Region.
- University of Arts (King’s Cross site), Central St Martin’s College
- 1 Granary Square London N1C 4AA.
