Panorama : What did you think?
I don’t know what all of you readers thought, but I myself found the reporting quite balanced. I would have liked to hear some more stories from the good apprenticeship providers that we saw short film clips of but on the whole I think it was reasonable..
For most of us who have worked in the industry for a while and believe that young people deserve the best deal they can get across all learning programmes, I think we all know that thee are provider out there that are the cut and run type in that they will try to look at various programmes on a short term basis and try to get as much cash as they can!
If this programme helps to root those out and start a real composed debate that I applaud that. If this just starts a massive witch hunt and there are casualties among good provider then that is wrong.
All in all I hope that it does give some momentum to promote the good and remove the bad!
