I think there is equal opportunity in both options. Having a higher qualification doesn't guarantee job security or any benefits in looking for work.

I am a huge advocate for traineeships. I start one with the public sector ten years ago and since then have climbed the ladder to become a senior team member. Degrees are fine if you need them for your occupation (e.g. lawyer, doctor) but traineeships can be just as good.

Having a degree doesn't gaurantee you a job. A traineeship guarantees you a job until you finish it.

Having a degree is a great foundation for any job. Degrees provide core transferable skills. This is complemented by training in a relevant area following the degree.

It depends purely on the individual and industry they pursue
