Stop the Cuts Campaign
PRESS RELEASE – 24th May 2012
The declaration by the Department of Education that they are cutting places for trainee teachers by 20% is part of the £300 million in Education cuts that is to be imposed by the Assembly Executive by 2015.
These cuts will see new teachers with post-primary Post-Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), who mainly works in Further and Higher Education Colleges cut by a fifth.
Pat Lawlor, from the Stop the Cuts Campaign, stated “this is part of the savage cuts in the education sector by the Assembly Executive that will see at least 1,000 teaching jobs gone in the next academic year; rising to 3,000 by 2015”.
Pat Lawlor added “Education Minister John O’Dowd has said that education cuts were an unsavoury but necessary decision, trying to divert sole blame to Westminster. But these cuts are imposed by the Executive and are fully supported by all the Assembly parties as part of their cuts agenda, which will see mass job losses amongst many experienced and new teachers”.
The SCC states at a time that we see growing social revolt by workers, youth and communities across Europe in opposition to savage austerity measures and cuts to jobs and services. It is clear that ordinary people are no longer willing to pay for the greed of the rich and it is now essential these cuts are opposed completely.
The SCC pledges to give any practical support and assistance to the establishment of any genuine campaign in opposition to this latest attack on workers.
