During your apprenticeship, you will be asked to complete 20% off the job training. The time you have for off the job training is calculated from the hours you work every week, so if you work 30 hours a week you will need to complete 6 hours a week off the job training. Off the job training must be completed within your working hours.
Off the job training can be a number of different things such as,
- Participating in online seminars
- Individual study time
- Being taught how to do something
- Working alongside another colleague
- Group learning
- Research tasks
- Internal learning
- Development programmes
- Helping at external events
- Visiting other businesses
Off the job training is a great way to help further a learner’s progression throughout their apprenticeship.
