I lot of employers have been taking training into their own hands recently, spurred on by digital media and learning providers such as Pearson. The early returns this apprenticeship program are not encouraging. "Questions have now been raised about government moves to encourage more employers to run their own training," according to this article, "with the average Ofsted rating across all eight employer providers inspected in the last nine months being a disappointing three." Providers fare no better. "Pearson was meanwhile slammed by Ofsted in January for its inadequate apprenticeship provision, after the inspection team found 'no 'key strengths'." This is one of the key truths about private sector management of public services: they have to be closely monitored and scrutinized because they will cut corners and provide inadequate service.
