The importance of off-the-job training
You will dedicate around 20% of your working hours to your learning and development. This equates to around one day a week. The minimum amount of time spent must be 6 hours a week (for those working 30 hours a week or more).
Apprentices who started their programmes before August 2022 are required to complete a minimum of 20% of their working hours on off the job training.
