  3. In 2016 the government introduced a requirement for all teacher-education students to achieve grade 4 in high-school maths. ‘This requirement is pure political symbolism,’ said SV’s Mona Fagerås.
  4. The majoriy have said that they would vote to reopen the college in Nesna in the future, but exactly how they will breathe life into the former college is unclear.
  5. Labour have signalled that a high priority will be reducing the proportion of temporary positions at universities and colleges, and Sp is in agreement to stop temporary employment for postdocs for more than one period.
