Off-The-Job Training

Throughout your apprenticeship, you are required to complete a minimum of 6 hours per week of off-the-job training.

This is an opportunity for you to cement your skills and return to work making an even greater impact. This combination of work-based learning, self-study and off-the-job training is what makes apprenticeships at Hult Ashridge so valuable.

Training Requirements

Off-the-job training is a mandatory part of all apprenticeships. The current funding rules state that each apprentice must take a minimum of 6-hours per week away from their role to complete this training. All off-the-job training must be recorded, and take place during contracted working hours (not overtime).

What Counts as Off-The-Job Training?

Off-the-job training doesn't necessarily mean spending physical time away from the office. The required hours can be achieved through a variety of activities which can be completed during the working day.

This video highlights some of the key benefits of off-the-job training in supporting apprenticeships acquiring the knowledge, skills and behaviours outlined by the apprenticeship standard.

Recording Off-The-Job-Training

You will need to keep a record of your off-the-job training. Whether it’s attending a webinar, joining a meeting outside of your normal role, or working on your assignment.

Luckily, we have an online platform to make this quick and easy. You and your line manager will be able to review your off-the-job training, and it will be discussed during your regular progress review meetings.
