Do we really need accrediated education to effectivly have the expected experience and/or knowledge in a chosen field? For instance can we learn more from doing a course in programming than we can from learning ourselves?
I see the benefits in both:
- Have an experienced tutor
- Gain a piece of 5 cent A4 sized paper that says you have a degree
Learning from ourselves
- Learn at our own pace
- Learn what we want to learn not what we are told to learn
- Less expences in travel and course costs
Why are we only 'qualified' to work in a certian field if we only complete a particular qualification? Cant we gain just as much knowledge by learing on our own accord? Or is it just about the money?
