British Airways and several European airlines, Easyjet for example, have recruited 250 + hours cadets into the RHS of A320 and similar etc. for decades with no problem.
Proper screening prior to training for ALTP, Type Rating and extensive route training with Training Capts.
All RHS co-pilots with BA are trained from the start of Route Traiing for two pilot ops.
What Airline do you fly for which allows such ill equipped co-pilots on public transport flights?
Do you not have any feedback to your obviously poor training set up?
I'd like to avoid that company!!
That is exactly what I said. Cadet programs only for established and proven training organization with high selection standard. Unfortunately there is an underworld of smaller outfit whose main business is putting people that should never be in a cockpit..in a cockpit...for cash.

Fun fact: in my country, flying in the bush in Africa, will drastically decrease the chance of getting a job at an airline when you get back.
When applying for a airline job, your background is checked and any (recent) years in a country with less than decent administration will result in a gap in your whereabouts, causing you to fail the background check and therefore make you ineligible for the job.
Few years ago this was a big problem with guys flying in IndonesiŽ, I Imagine Africa would be even worse.

Besides that, how many jobs are there in the bush? I am guessing not enough, by far, to give every future airline pilot that experience, besides the point that, in my part of the world, you can spend up to 100.000 euro for training, which the bank really wants back when you are earning next to nothing flying medicin to a village.
