Blog: Hammond ’ s budget left public services gasping for air
Yesterday, Philip Hammond delivered his second budget as Chancellor. The last one was uninspiring, unraveled quickly and showed just how out of touch with modern Britain the Conservative Party is. A few months after that debacle, his party lost its majority and nearly tumbled out of power. In the days and weeks that followed, Hammond and his beleaguered boss Theresa May implied they understood the message the public had sent them. They told us they had changed. They told us things would be different. For UNISON’s 1.3 million members, there was even the suggestion that proper pay rises for public servants might at lon...

Tax Reform Could Impact Higher Education
Congress is considering major tax overhauls that would, among other things, impose an excise tax on the investment earnings of endowments at wealthy colleges and universities. Nearly seventy private institutions of higher education would be subject to the new tax, which only affects schools whose endowments exceed $250,000 per student. Public universities would be exempt. Only 30 of the top 300 research institutions in the U.S. fall within the list. Among them are Harvard University, Stanford University, MIT, Yale University, and Columbia University.

It supports both young people and adult learners through a huge range of qualifications in a variety of different subjects and skills. FE colleges are more likely to educate pupils with special educational needs, take on more students who receive free school meals and often cater for those who haven’t achieved th...
