"British academics fear the government's plans for cuts will have a negative impact on the north of the county and are to unite to fight against the plan.
Principal Mark Silverman has called for MPs support.
"I am concerned at the Department of Education's decision to stop paying Education Maintenance Allowances to 16 to 18-year-olds in July 2011. I have written to the college's local MPs to ask for their support in seeking reconsideration of the matter. The allowance is vital in enabling learners from low income families to stay in full time education."
The Education Maintenance Allowance is between £10 and £30 and is paid to poor 16 to 18-year-olds to enable them to continue their education, afford travel costs, equipment and books."
