Cut college entry

l There is an oversupply of graduates, yet no reduction in the numbers entering college. The age of entry should be increased to 19 to slow down the numbers of graduates and to save money.

Possibly, video tutorials could be rolled out.

I am a primary school teacher. We are sick of being targeted for cuts. Children need the best start possible.

In addition, graduates who are longest qualified need to be prioritised for jobs. We can't just be leapfrogged by newbies.

The Government is going to run into major problems if it allows degrees, knowledge and skills to go to waste.
