An interesting read. 62% of British adults believe a degree has no impact on earning potential. Women with degrees earn 51% more than those without, across their lifetimes. Have a read and see what you think.
The aim of education must be to instil a passion to learn. Currently the general view is that once the graduation ceremony is concluded, so too is any thought of further formal education. This saddens me greatly – the opportunity to learn throughout our lives is one of the most amazing we have. Around 90% of us are likely to need to upskill or develop anew over the next decade or so. Universities have a duty beyond the degree being studied. They need to ensure everyone that graduates continue to learn throughout their career.
