20% Off The Job Training: The Reality For Employers
The Apprenticeship Levy means that employers across England need to understand the basics of off-the-job training for their Apprentices. Off-the-job training is learning which is done outside of the normal day-to-day working environment, it must be carried out within working hours and needs be done for the Apprentice to gain their Apprenticeship qualification.
In the video below Stewart Segal, The Director of Strategy and Policy at 3aaa Apprenticeships talks about the requirement to deliver 20% of off-the-job training for Apprenticeship programmes and what this means for employers and their staff. He explains how employers can ensure that their Apprentices meet this requirement through a number of ways, as long as it is not their day-to-day activities at work.
