What is off-the-job training?

Off-the-job training is learning which is undertaken outside of the normal day-to-day working environment and leads towards the achievement of the apprenticeship. The 20% off-the-job training requirement is measured over the course of an apprenticeship, not per academic year. This is an essential part of the apprenticeship and therefore must take place during employed time and the apprentice must be paid for the off-the-job training.

How will I be assessed?

At the end of the apprenticeship students will be expected to take part in an end point assessment, this will assess how an apprentice can apply their skills, knowledge and behaviours acquired in their apprenticeship. Throughout the apprenticeship, students will build up a portfolio of work for discussion, which will compromise of evidence produced in the work place to show the apprentice has met the knowledge, skills and behaviours detailed in the standard.

  • Satisfactorily completed training covering the skills, knowledge and behaviours as described in the standard
  • Achieved the Mandatory qualifications set out in the standard
  • Achieved the required English & Maths qualifications specified in the standard
  • Sufficient evidence in the form of a portfolio of evidence to allow the apprentice to consistently demonstrate knowledge, skills and behaviours as described in the standard.
