Consuming Issues: Is there another way to get a good education without paying high fees? Listen too Dr Kairen Cullen

And with prices looking likely to increase in the autumn of 2017, under new Tory legislation, is there a cheaper way to learn new skills without paying over the odds? Well, one-way people are doing it is by turning to digital tools, and apps rather than pay for expert advice or services. In fact, over 40% have done this, according to Halifax Insurance. Georgie Frost was joined by Dr Kairen Cullen, and Educational Psychologist.
