I believe and this is my opinion that when this thing about "Everyone" should go to Uni started (Mirroring the US) it threw in degrees that at the end of it the jobs that the degree got you weren't well paid and could be done by those just going to a Poly or College with A levels, I know its going back a bit but A levels were something then, Nowadays they're just used as a tool to get into Uni. Drgree/Apprenticeships for a lot of jobs are the way forward imo, You get hands on skills, Life skills and the best training and academia in one plus not being saddled with debt.I'm not convinced there was one there Al, but let's follow it through.
