No one's talking about degree apprenticeships

“No-one’s talking about degree apprenticeships” So said a member of audience on a recent edition of Question time. And he was right. The panel, including Angela Rayner, Labour’s shadow education minister, made no mention of apprenticeships in any way in their answers to a question, nicely worded, on the value of a degree costing circa £50 K. It took the valiant Michelle Dewsbury (ex The Apprentice winner) to mention apprenticeships at all. Her answer, questioning the value and relevance of many degrees (she runs a recruitment firm) and instead praising the apprenticeship route, received a universal thunderous round of applause, noted by David Dimbleby as a first for a QT audience.
