Will 12 week apprentices ever be derailed?

Train’d Up is the latest provider to be advertsing 12 week apprenticeships.

The Skills Funding Agency has allocated Train’d Up £585,542 to deliver apprenticeships in 2011/12.

The company website (see below) advertises City & Guilds Railway Engineering NVQ Level 2 Apprenticeship, promising learners “£100 per week for 12 weeks.”

FE Week has spoken and written to Train’d Up, but have been unable to secure a comment at the time of publication.
