BBC Radio 4's consumer affairs program "You & Yours" is running a feature on the latest news of Caring Careers Training of Oxfordshire, along with its owner, Andrew Battman, who have effectively closed down leaving many students in trouble after taking their money.

Obviously those in the Philipines will not be able to hear it on radio, but it is available online, both live, and by BBC's IPlayer feature.

You and Yours
News and discussion of consumer affairs
We have been told that there should be no problem to listening in RP as it is a BBC program and there is no outside copyright, it is supposed to be the first or second piece on the program. UPDATE - it is confirmed from RP that the Radio 4 link works and can be listened to online outside the UK
Besides the piece on CCT and the Battman connection, there is yet another interview with the head of OFQUAL Isabel Nesbit (who regulate qualification providers like Edexcel and City & Guilds) about what progress has been made in getting students better protected - she promised this last year in an interview about Precision Training on the same program
(This is the running order as stated on Wednesday evening, however there is always the possibility that some larger financial disaster may occur which would mean the program being moved to a later date)
