How does the apprenticeship work?

An apprenticeship is a combination of a full-time job with training for a current or new employee in your business. The apprentice’s working time will be split 80/20. 80% of their working time will be spent with you, carrying out their day-to-day responsibilities. 20% of their time will be ‘off-the-job’ and spent working towards their apprenticeship qualification.

What counts as off-the-job training and how is the 20% measured?

Off-the-job training includes:

  • Work spent on their apprenticeship qualification
  • Face to face/virtual classroom training
  • Any employer training
  • Mentoring
  • Work spent on their reflective journal – for Arch it’s Hive Learning
  • Shadowing other teams
  • Attending industry events

At Arch we have a 20% off-the-job tracker that the apprentice, their Learning & Development Coach and line manager monitor.

How is the training delivered?

The apprenticeship programme the training is delivered online and supported by face to face visits with the apprentice’s Learning and Development Coach. Training is delivered in blocks to minimise disruption, so you won’t have someone leaving the office a day a week.
