Mullan elected chair of Assembly’s all-party group on further and higher education.

Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has been elected as the chair of the Assembly’s all-party group on further and higher education. 
The party’s education spokesperson said: 


“I was very honoured to be elected as the chair of the Assembly’s all-party group on further and higher education and to attend my first meeting as chair. 
“Students, like many others, are going through an extremely difficult time as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and need clarity on a range of issues. 


“I met with representatives of a number of student unions to discuss the work of the all-party group, particularly around the impact the pandemic is having on not only the education but also the mental health of students. 


“I will continue to work with students and their representatives to make sure the concerns of students are heard.”
