The first pilot edition of FE Week in June 2011 (see picture) ran an exclusive story about 12 week apprenticeships. Since then FE Week has followed the debate and government reaction closely.
This special edition catalogues just a few of our articles, culminating in the government announcing this week that they will be introducing minimum durations for apprenticeship programmes.
A personal highlight was being invited into Number 10 to discuss the issue, and along the way numerous national media outlets have quoted our reporting on apprenticeship quality (see page 3).
In 2012 we will be taking a closer look at what the government mean by skills ‘investment’ in the context of large employers.
