NCAFC Summer Training 2017 Registration!
Join the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts in Sheffield on September 9th - September 11th!

After the surprising Labour success in the General Election, on the most left wing platform in a generation, we are closer than ever to winning free education. Labour won seats on a manifesto that promised to scrap tuition fees, build social housing, and create a free National Education Service. The Tory leadership is increasingly becoming increasingly weak (and wobbly), and it is looking likely that we will kick out the politicians who brought in £9K fees 7 years ago.

But even with though the left has made gains on a national level, the fight is far from over. The HE Reforms are in full swing. In June, the Teaching Excellence Framework rankings were released and already sweeping cuts are hitting our campuses. Moreover, even with the prospect of abolishing fees and restoring the Educational Maintenance Allowance in sight, is that enough? Free Education has developed beyond fees and EMA to mean public education which is free, yes, but accessible, liberated and democratic too.

The only way to stop the government's reforms and win free, accessible, liberated and democratic education is to form a militant grassroots movement!

Join us for our Summer Training! We'll be starting on Friday morning (usually 10am) and ending sessions by 5pm on the Sunday. This event is followed by our National Committee meeting on Monday 11th which is open to all members (although only NC members can vote). Training is open to all but to participate in democratic decision-making sessions you will need to be a member. You can join online or via postal form. See

NCAFC is committed to providing free lunch and free accommodation at our conferences and training events as well as travel subsidies for those in need. We recommend people book their transport as far in advanced as possible and come on the cheapest form of transport that is accessible to them. Free lunch, free accommodation and prayer facilities will be available. We will be holding all sessions at The University of Sheffield, which is completely wheelchair accessible.

NCAFC aims to provide an access fund for those struggling financially to travel to the conference, and can make a contribution towards the costs of transport for our campaigners. Would you like to access this fund?
Although we try to compensate as many people as possible, we are only funded through donations. If you want to ensure you get help with transport costs please contact us at or via our Facebook page before Summer Training and will discuss subsiding your transport. If you tell us at Summer Training or after we will do our best to subsidise transport but we cannot make any guarantees.
