What is 20% off the job?

20% off the job refers to the rule that in order for a business to get funding for an apprentice. the apprentice must complete 20% of their working time ‘off the job’, off the job is any activities that aren’t part of the apprentice’s normal day to day work. This could be any of the following:

·             Writing assessments

·             Simulation

·             Self-Study

·             Shadowing colleagues

·             Coaching

·             Training courses (e.g. health and safety)

·             Workshops

·             Online Learning

·             Mentoring

·             Role play exercise

Evidence will need to be included that the apprentice has completed their 20% off the job, this is normally recorded by the apprentice and assessor throughout the apprenticeship.
