University a ‘Disaster’

  • 04 Feb 2015

Well, that’s an eye-grabbing headline if ever I saw one! Don’t worry, it’s not as bad as it sounds.


Welsh Secretary Stephen Crabb has come out and said that sending young people to university, when they would be more suited to apprenticeships, is a “disaster”.

Crabb isn’t too keen on the target of the last Labour government to get 50% of young people to university, and recommends Welsh politicians to focus on apprenticeships and school leaver programmes.

Crabb said Wales was “not doing well enough” to educate young people on their career options.
