@aurora7 @KirstieMAllsopp we need apprenticeships in almost all disciplines. Universities are just businesses making cash off our children

@KirstieMAllsopp if I could go back in time I wouldn't go to Uni. Waste of money, employers don't look for a degree.Only working experience!
Retweeted by Kirstie Mary Allsopp
@KirstieMAllsopp Well said! As a teacher, I get so angry with people saying all kids should go to Uni. Waste of time for majority of them.
Retweeted by Kirstie Mary Allsopp
@KirstieMAllsopp and it's unnecessary degrees like this, that mean we can't fully fund the necessary ones.

@KirstieMAllsopp as a teacher i do, even going so far as to say university wasn't for me and i regret going.

@KirstieMAllsopp why don't the Government pay firms £9k a year for firms to train unpaid staff, surely it would be more beneficial.

@KirstieMAllsopp ..son did events management at uni...We asked why he needed a degree to hold a party?...
Retweeted by Kirstie Mary Allsopp
@KirstieMAllsopp event management is all about experience, better starting off at the bottom and working your way up...
Retweeted by Kirstie Mary Allsopp
I DO believe in tertiary education, I just don't believe in paying for something you could learn on the job. So many degrees are a ripoff.
@KirstieMAllsopp You'd be surprised, sadly many co's are dazzled by degrees, even if totally irrelevant subjects!

@LynnCherylEde @KirstieMAllsopp So true, my dad was 50 & has great CV, got no interviews, took DOB off & got LOADS! So sad & frustrating....

Someone has to say the Emperor is naked! Young people must not be forced to waste money. Industry chiefs must stand up to this insanity.
@Jazifer @KirstieMAllsopp don't forget the volunteer sector. Community groups need young, energetic, enthusiastic people to help org events

£36K to learn events management at Plymouth University!! In the time it took you to learn & spend at uni you could reach a senior level.
@KirstieMAllsopp @PlymUni sometimes there is more to life than money. the whole experience is woth the £36k in student loans.
Retweeted by Kirstie Mary Allsopp
@KirstieMAllsopp You can also learn events management in other careers e.g. lobbying, politics, professional societies, corporate world.
Retweeted by Kirstie Mary Allsopp
Good companies want young people with strong CVs which show they can pull their weight, muck in and learn fast - Not degrees.
To the folk who said an events management company wouldn't give you a john without a degree, you are totally wrong!
@KirstieMAllsopp do you feel like driving off and leaving some buyers in the property#location locationlocationprobs

Have just discovered you can study Events Management over 4 years at uni? WTF?! Go and work for an events company and they'll pay you #Daft
One the frustration richter scale it was off the scale #locationlocationlocation
Nearly forgot, one of the best ever Location, Location, Locations is on Channel 4 right now. You won't be disappointed! Turn on, turn over.
