This can include training that is delivered at the apprentice’s normal place of work but must not be delivered as part of their normal working duties. The off-the-job training must be directly relevant to the apprenticeship framework or standard.

20% off the job training employers and trainers guide

  1. 1. 20 FOR 20 THE APPRENTICESHIP LEVY 20% OFF THE JOB TRAINING FOR APPRENTICESHIPS A GENERAL GUIDE FOR EMPLOYERS AND DELIVERY STAFF
  2. 2. APPRENTICESHIP CHANGES The Government has driven a number of changes to how apprenticeships work; which are now in force and these include the introduction of: • Employer LEVY and employer contributions for Non- Levy payers in an attempt to put employers in the driving seat • Apprenticeship Standards replacing Frameworks • A requirement for 20% of the job training for apprentices under the new Standards
  3. 3. THE 20% AND THE LACK OF CLARITY •20% of the job training for apprentices under the new Standards has caused some confusion about what ‘off-the- job’ actually means. •In an attempt to clear things up, the ESFA has defined off-the- job as: ‘learning which is undertaken outside of the normal day-to-day working environment and leads towards the achievement of an apprenticeship.’
  4. 4. THE 20% AND THE LACK OF CLARITY •However, this is still open to interpretation and there is lack of clarity ‘Training can be delivered at the apprentice’s normal place of work but not as part of their normal working duties.’ ‘The off-the-job training must be directly relevant to the apprenticeship framework or standard’
