Do you think going to college is worth it?

In lots of countries these days, it is hard to get a job, yet young people still choose to study for qualifications when sometimes they might be better getting experience of the workplace.

Do you think it is still worth going to college even if you might not get a job at the end of it, or do you think that there are better ways to get into work?

    There is always less interest in vocational training, which is more likely to guarantee work. However not everyone likes getting their hands dirty or doing practical work. Most people think an office job is infinitely preferable, easier and maybe better paid.

    That said, I think education is important for everyone. I just think expectations need to be more realistic.

    Yes I think a lot of people think that they are going to be in a million pound job as soon as they graduate, and that is never going to be the case.
