Join the campaign to get the government to reverse its intention to pull the plug on the English Union Learning Fund, including the FEU Training project, which each year supports around 200,000 workers with skills training and career development.

FEU Training offers members living in England a range of free workshops, webinars and online resources to help with their careers as professionals and to acquire business skills. The Federation of Entertainment Unions represents more than 100,000 writers, journalists, musicians and actors.

Find out more, including a statement by the FEU general secretaries, on the NUJ campaign page.

How you can support the campaign

Sign the petition

The government's plans to cut the Union Learning Fund (ULF) means hundreds of thousands of workers will miss out on skills and training. Sign the reverse the cuts to union learning petition calling on Gavin Williamson, Education Secretary, to reverse cuts to union learning and ensure working people can access education and skills training. The Federation of Entertainment Unions’ ULF project is one of the very few which addresses the training needs of freelances in the media and creative industries.
