College money to be scrapped
It is a sum of money, introduced by the last Labour government, to help young people afford to go to college who would not otherwise be able to afford it. It is a sum up to £30 per week depending on your family income. And if you are a young person in college, in further education, it pays your bus fairs, for a few books and a sandwich at lunchtime.
7700 young people in Liverpool claim EMA. 6900 claim the full £30.
Tory/LibDem coalition is scrapping the EMA
Goodbye to students, to courses, to success and confidence building.
