Off-The-Job Training Hours

Off-the-job training is a statutory requirement for an English apprenticeship. It is training which is received by the apprentice, during the apprentice’s normal working hours, for the purpose of achieving the knowledge, skills and behaviours of the approved apprenticeship referenced in the apprenticeship agreement. An elogbook is required to be completed with a minimum number of hours and assessed by a workplace mentor.

Off-the-job training is met by guided learning within the workplace and is supplemented by formal training such as face to face delivery in our training centre and digital learning opportunities such as e-learning.

End Point Assessment

Apprenticeship certification is awarded by successful achievement of an independent assessment at the end of the apprenticeship. Prior eligibility criteria such as the number of hours of off the job training and functional skills achievement are required to be met before the candidate can be put forward for End Point Assessment. The End Point Assessment will be overseen by an independent Awarding Body and contain the following elements:

  • Online knowledge assessment
  • Observed practical skills test
  • Synoptic professional discussion
