Apple reportedly shuttering One to One on September 28

It appears that Apple may be shutting down its One to One education program in its Apple Retail Stores at the end of September. A memo has reportedly been sent to retail staff letting them know that One to One will be discontinued on September 28, with the revamped Workshops program taking its place.

From memo, obtained by 9to5Mac:

Open Training and Thematic Workshops are great options. Thematic Workshops offer dynamic learning where customers learn from the instructor and other participants. Open Training encourages a collaborative learning environment for One to One members to work on their goals. We'll be providing guidance to increase the number of Thematic Workshops that your store will offer to customers.

It's not surprising to see One to One being shuttered. The program is expensive for stores to run, and with an ever-dwindling number of new sign ups, it's probably better for Apple to put focus in areas that will end up serving more customers.
