Supporting new jobs and creating skills locally

Opeing an affordable university


Barking and Dagenham Council

Barking & Dagenham Council has opened its very own affordable and flexible university with Coventry University. CU London opened its doors in September 2017 and already has already expanded to over 1,000 students – half of whom are local – due to phenomenal demand. The campus is located at the old Dagenham Civic Centre, where an £8m investment has given one of the council’s old buildings a new lease of life. The university offers a range of full time and part time courses with lower fees, lower entry requirements and more flexible learning options.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
