During their apprenticeship, your apprentice will receive two different types of training.
‘On-the-job’ training will be delivered by you, as the employer. You’ll need to give your apprentice training and supervision to help them perform the job you’ve hired them to do.
This will include skills and knowledge that fall outside of the apprenticeship, but which are needed for the job role.
As well as providing ‘on-the-job’ training for your apprentice, it is important that you are supporting your apprentice in additional ways to ensure their success.
‘Off-the-job’ training is delivered during your apprentice’s normal working hours.
Apprentices must spend at least 20% of their working hours completing ‘off-the-job’ training. This is protected time and is a legal requirement for apprenticeship delivery.
This training will teach your apprentice the knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in the apprenticeship standard so they can achieve occupational competence.
