Policy comparisons

As we approach the general election on 7 May, UCU has mined the manifestos and set out each party’s stance on a range of key issues. Summaries are listed by policy area and by party, so we hope that this quick-reference guide will make it easy for you to compare and contrast what the different parties in England, Scotland and Wales* are promising for those working and studying in post-16 education.

*NB A separate comparison of party policy in Northern Ireland is also available. Care has been taken to include all relevant commitments from each party but if you have any questions about the content on these pages, please email publicaffairs@ucu.org.uk
