Apprentices used for 'cheap labour'?



New Member
Hi all,

I am a freelance journalist from Southampton, investigating the experiences of apprentices in the UK. It doesn't matter if they good, bad or indifferent, I'd love to hear from you.

I used to be an apprentice myself, and luckily I had a good place of work and training provider. However, I am aware that this is not always the case.

There seems to be some concern over six month apprenticeships, claiming they are not long enough to develop apprentices. If you have a situation you feel you want to discuss then contact me on, or phone 07896911227.

Thank you,

Gary Peters
