|Frank Field MP - a moral voice (Liverpool Echo photo)|
Mr Field says the facts show that young people should think twice about studying for a degree pointing to apprenticeships as a much better option for many young people.
Writing in the Times Education Supplement (TES) Mr Field said "There is already a growing unease among young graduates who feel they have been ripped off." He added: "This mis-selling scandal is so strongly embedded that it is countering any appetite across the country for alternative routes into jobs that pay decent wages and offer healthy prospects for progression." Mr Field argued that apprenticeships could provide a better route into work for some school-leavers and they could earn more than some graduates. "A large number of students have been sold a pup," he alleged.
