    Please emphasise the need for somnoee to monitor and take action with the unscrupulous apprenticeship providers. We (an FE college) are desperately trying to give our apprentice learners a great head start in their careers, working with employers to ensure they are doing real work whilst actually teaching them the knowledge element and developing their English and Maths skills. This is all so easily undone by giving apprenticeships a bad name through fast track routes, unfair practices and broken promises.Proper apprenticeships, supported by a funding system that supports the learner, not perverse incentives similar to the newly announced 10% bonus if a learner fails (genius! and an open door to more dodgy funding claims) are what’s needed if the government truly believe in the value of an apprenticeship.Good luck!
