Re: University fees UK

And I quote, maybe a play on words but...........

Quote:
If you loved nothing more than spending hours building castles and forts with Lego bricks when you were younger, then a new professor role at Cambridge University well be the dream job for you.

The prestigious university has just hired its first ‘Lego Professor of Play’, who will be tasked with examining how children are encouraged to play at home and school, and how this can benefit their learning development.

Re: University fees UK

If we really cared about our Country and young people, who will eventually fund everything with their taxation we would recognise the need to help them, be it with Apprenticeships or University Degrees in the skills required to take us forward.

The present system is backward and discriminates against the less wealthy.

If we really want a great country invest in these kids, take them forward, get into deprived areas , give them a chance.

Re: University fees UK

Not quite sure what a deprived area is in the Uk,of course over the years areas have been hit hard with the old industries closing but you can always move and find work as many from the EU have found in the Uk.Of course the wealthy will have more advantages that's life but if you're good enough you can still get on.

degrees.
Such as:
Baking technology, Brewing and distilling, Circus performance,
Hand embroidery, Yacht operations, Floral design, Theatre practice & puppetry, Ethical hacking, An MA on the Beatles.

I would reckon most of this would have been an apprenticeship of a type at one time.

How times have changed.
I made it to high school but couldnt cope (too thick) and left at 15. My older brother was clever but parents werent letting him go until my dad went to get an ice cream from a van and the `server` was one of his teachers who gave my dad a bollockin for not letting him to Uni, he got 13 passes between o-level and higher levels, so a turn around and brother went to do chemistry at Edin Uni, after a year he was told its too easy for you try mathematical physics and he was the youngest in Scotland to get a 1st class honours. Got jobs and never used the fekcin degree, did earn good money though.

In those days you had to be clever to get there but now I could probably go and get a degree in something. So we end up with a load of half wits in top jobs and running the country.
A bang on post J. For years its been "off the shelf tradesmen" & no training for youngsters. now the cry is lack of skills. I think I read somewhere that they're now contemplating making people have a degree to get into the police force.

One common denominator for the youth, middle aged & the elderly? MONEY. Offer the kids money along with the chance of learning a proper trade that will benefit themselves & the UK.
From my school days I think I knew one guy who went onto uni & even with him I'm not sure. He was bright & along with others I knew went off to collage, most of which because the scarves were long with wide stripes & they didn't fancy working.
I scan some of these courses on offer & it does make me wonder if having a degree in some unknown subject opens other doors? You known the interview time, "I have a degree", in what? "In being a p*x doctors clerk", the jobs yours!!
Im all for education, after all where would we be without it?

No wonder there is a further brain drain as our brightest and best hoof it off abroad to further their lives , without the handicap of starting life with huge debts , hanging around their necks .

so , yes ESB i agree Labour's betrayal of students was disgusting , May's usurious cheat is only there to skin the kids alive.

A shameful chapter , entirely scripted by those who had the freest and cheapest of educations.

Hypocrites to a man and woman , as usual Westminster is stuffed with them.

Re: University fees UK

The Lego play Professor , not quite as the ragtops portray

The University of Cambridge has appointed its first "Lego professor of play".

Paul Ramchandani, an expert in child mental health with Imperial College, London, will take up the post in January.

He beat off a global field of applicants and is expected to earn around 84,000 a year, the average for Cambridge professors.

Funding for the new role will come from a 4m grant from the Lego Foundation.

It has also paid for a specialist play research centre (PEDAL), built in 2015 and based in the Faculty of Education.

Professor Ramchandani currently leads the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Research Unit at Imperial College, and has spent the last 15 years specialising in child development research.

He will officially become Lego Professor of Play in Education, Development and Learning, and study the role of play - and playfulness - in young children.

"Everyone has an opinion about what role play should have in early education and there is some wonderful research, but there are also big gaps in our knowledge," he said.

"We need the best evidence possible in order to inform the vital decisions that are made about children's education and development and I look forward to taking that work forward together with colleagues at Cambridge."

The team at PEDAL say the priority for their research will be equipping children with 21st century skills like problem solving, team work and self-control.

Cambridge University began the search for a professor of play in June 2015. The process closed in January 2017.

The job description specified a candidate with an "outstanding research record of international stature" and "vision, leadership, experience and enthusiasm".

And let's not forget the Tories freezing of the level at which graduates will start to repay those loans, it won't be long before payback starts as you reach the minimum wage.
Further education available to all, well, those who can afford it.
