Off-the-job training is a requirement of all apprenticeships, yet it remains one of the biggest barriers to employers utilising their apprenticeship levy.
Off-the-job training provides an opportunity for apprentices to cement their learning 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 so valuable.
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.
