    Hi, I am student at University of Leicester, currently an intern at The Graduate, a start-up that offers online tutoring and is looking to change how we offer education. I am currently conducting a market research project and was wondering if you could help me out by taking just a minute of your time.

    I am looking at how, as education evolves and technology continues to make jobs obsolete, how people at various ages, feel about continuous learning (for example learning to code after school or university), as well as how you feel about education today. Do you value it as something as something that should continue throughout your life? Why are you looking to go back into education? Is it for work reasons, or simply to broaden your horizons? Let me know by filling out the poll, as well as telling me in the comments* (when you comment please state what age category you belong too (18-25, 25-32, 32-40,40-50, 50+). Look forward to hearing from you!

    *no personal details will be shared and all answers expect for age groups, will be annoymonous

    I voted. Unfortunately I don't think many people value education for its own sake.
