The government’s substandard replacement, the Turing scheme, fails to fund local projects, and reduces the money and support available for UK students wishing to study abroad. Young trainees, workers and apprentices are no longer able to take part at all.
We have closed our doors completely to the world and taken funding from those wanting to come to the UK, losing us both our place as a world-leading destination to work and study, and an estimated £243 million annual profit from foreign participants that used to spend money across the UK.
YEM UK, with European Movement UK, the British Youth Council, and every member of our coalition, stands with the students and young workers of this country. We demand that the Government listen to our voices, ditch Turing and rejoin Erasmus+ now.
