Off the Job Training
To attract government funding a 20% (20% of the whole programme) minimum threshold has been set. This is the minimum amount of time that should be spent on occupational off-the-job training during an apprenticeship. This applies to both apprenticeship frameworks and to apprenticeship standards at all levels.
Off the job training is not just course work, it is ANY training and learning provided by an employer. This could be anything ranging from how to change a wheel to how to deal with customers.
It is essential that you record and keep a record of the hours you have completed, this is required because it will be checked at the end of your course.
This is a simple and easy process, simply record the date, length and describe the training that took place, this does not need to be overly complex, just summarise the details of what you completed.
