That won't happen
As a UK company we set up, ran a UK software apprentice scheme and successfully qualified a bunch of really quite excellent British engineers. They were experienced with a wide range of tools, developed code on a range of platforms (embedded, smartphones, linux and windows) and were able to more than hold their own in competitions with graduates from university.
What thanks did we get? The local college we had to partner with took all the government money and the government (despite the local MP knowing about this scheme AND being in charge of things) promptly went out and gave Microsoft billions for them to create a software apprenticeship scheme. Microsoft STILL haven't got one running, still haven't created a single apprenticeship place with all that money. When they do finally manage it the apprentices will be excellent with visual studio and power point and sod all use with anything else.
The British government - both Labour and Conservative HATES British industry, hates it with a passion and would rather strip us all of every penny we possess and give it away to their mates abroad. Thats where I am going - my coat is already on, the job in the bag and I'm off.
