As an employer, you will be providing on-the-job training and supervision. Apprentices need to spend 20% of their working contracted hours completing off-the-job training, which can be delivered in a variety of ways to suit the learner, service, and the programme, including:
- In the workplace
- With a college or other training provider
The expectation of off-the-job training is that it will be learning outside of a normal part of the job, such as undertaking specific training courses to meet the technical knowledge, skills and behaviours required for the apprenticeship.
Training can be delivered with the frequency to suit the apprentice, such as one day per week, part of a working day, or in specific blocks of time.
