With rising tuition fees, national apprenticeship schemes, elections promises and widening skills gaps, who should be paying for the education of our young people? Is it companies, student debts, parents or the government?
We invite all those who are interested to discuss how we should be funding the future of UK higher education.
Join the debate, chaired by Dr. Caspar Hewett (The Great Debate); panelists Nicky Turnbull (Head of Higher Education, Newcastle College), Bradley Reid & Mark Thompson.
All are welcome to join us in the bar afterwards to continue the debate.
