Student Union President and Level 3 Sports Studies student, Sophie Day from Cambridge Regional College invited Daniel Zeichner, MP for Cambridge, to attend the college for a forum with students and staff about the importance of fair funding for further education (FE).
Mr Zeichner, who recently referenced the region’s colleges during a parliamentary debate speech on FE funding, addressed a full room, fielding questions from both students and staff about the role of FE in local economies and college funding.
Sophie was delighted to host Mr Zeichner’s visit, saying “FE Colleges do amazing things, providing the opportunities to transform people’s lives, so imagine what could be done if more funding was available. I was delighted and a little surprised when my invitation to Daniel was accepted, it just goes to show that students do have the power to make a difference. I would like to thank Daniel again for visiting as this was a great way to raise awareness and get more people involved in finding solutions.”
