Off-the-job training is defined as learning which is undertaken outside of the normal day-to-day working environment, forms part of their working week and leads towards the achievement of an apprenticeship. This can include training that is delivered at the apprentices normal place of work but must not be delivered as part of their normal working duties. Examples of off-the-job training could include the following:
The teaching of theory (college attendance)
Practical training (including college attendance)
Learning support and time spent writing assessments/assignments
Off-the-job training does not include:
English and Maths
Progress reviews or on-programme assessment required for an apprenticeship standard
Training which takes place outside the apprentices paid working hours. If training must take place, by exception, outside of these hours, it is expected that this is recognised (for example through time off in lieu).
The majority of the course will take place with the employer but you will be expected to attend our King's Lynn campus one day per week.

An interview will be required to identify your potential, commitment and motivation to achieve the apprenticeship. We will also use the interview as an opportunity to discuss your employer. Depending on your level of English and Maths, you may be asked to complete an initial assessment to show your ability to complete a further level 2 qualification in English and / or Maths.

How is my course assessed?
During the apprenticeship, your employer and assessor will be looking for continual development of skills, knowledge and behaviours to ensure that you are working towards meeting the requirements of each unit.
You will complete an end-point assessment at the end of your apprenticeship. This will be a practical assessment and an interview / discussion. This will assess your professionalism, values, behaviours, communication, safe working practices and consultation skills.
