Let our lecturers keep their jobs!

This petition made change with 1,286 supporters!

I'm sure everyone has heard that UCLan plan on cutting the number of lecturers by 75 meaning 420 members of staff are currently at risk of being made redundant. This will undoubtedly have a huge impact on the kind of teaching that students receive and will mean 75 people lose their income and jobs. It would be an absolute shame to lose some of the knowledgeable, intelligent and highly qualified lecturers! Please sign this to show that you are AGAINST this and would like the lecturers to all keep their roles.

"This week, many students discovered the impending academic staff losses that are on the horizon at The University of Central Lancashire. They are not pleased. Many of them are proud to be students at UCLan and some of that pride comes from the mentoring and encouragement that they’ve been afforded by inspirational personal tutors, module leaders and lecturers. Sure they have a job description and a certain amount of contact time is mandated, but in the Psychology department at least, there are many students that see them go above and beyond their mandate to enhance the student experience. I love UCLan as a brand and as an institute for education, having worked and studied here for nearly four years it pains me to see the current situation because it’s obvious that here, it’s the students that really matter to the academics which is something management need to take into account."
