Skills gap widens as IT is sent offshore - Telegraph

Skills gap widens as IT is sent offshore - Telegraph: "Ann Swain, chief executive of the Association of Technology Staffing Companies, has previously warned: 'The shortage now is of candidates with a few years' experience looking for second and third jobs. But how do you get that experience if entry-level jobs are being sent offshore?'"

Do UK IT graduates need to do their apprentiships offshore? for example instead of the tranditional year out seeing the world should graduates take their first job for Satyam in Bangalore? How would western graduates adjust to the wage and living conditions (no sky+ or heinz beans)?
