UHI Shetland Campaign

Stop job losses at UHI Shetland and the attack on rural communities

UHI Shetland are undertaking an Academic Restructure with the intention of shedding 18.07 full time equivalent lecturer posts at the college, that’s almost one third of all lecturers at UHI Shetland.

Oppose the cuts.

The loss of staff and educational provision on this scale will have a hugely detrimental impact on the community of Shetland - on the staff who will lose jobs and livelihoods; on rural and isolated communities; on the local economy and on the young people who have a right to access tertiary education locally.
