I must admit an interest in this company. When I stopped working per se in IT, I did a few private contracts. I was taken on by A4E to design and implement a Learn Direct Facility. After I got there, after a lot of stalling, it turned out they didnt actually have a budget, and i was conned. However, the idiot running it then offered me a job as 'Programme Tutor'. i accepted just to see what it involved. It turned out to be little more than state sponsored babysitting and bunch of wastral 18-25 year olds. Furthermore, I was pretty horrified to the 'creative accounting' that went on, and the blatant cheating I saw. I told him to stick it and left after two months, i didnt want any part of such blatant dishonesty.
Are A4E a fit company? No, there a bunch of crooks, as will become apparent in the next few weeks. The Permanent Private Secretary for the DWP has been caught with his pants down trying to hush it all up, but theres nowhere to hide now.
