The Richard Review said the definition of what an apprenticeship actually is "has been stretched too far" in recent years, as there has been a rapid uptake of the positions with the government urging young people to consider them as an alternative to a university place.
Entrepreneur Doug Richard was asked by Vince Cable and Michael Gove to analyse the existing apprenticeship structure in England and following the publication, the coalition said it welcomed the report and will respond in due course.
In the review, Mr Richards asserts that those apprenticeships "measured in weeks or months", can still "fall short" of the required level of training that is needed in many cases.
He explained that even though knowledge can be learnt in a shorter period, it will take longer for the apprentice to become a skilled worker.
