Off-the-job training and guidance supporting young apprenticeships

National Apprenticeship Service has developed two new products for employers about off-the-job training and guidance supporting young apprenticeships.

They have published a flowchart to help employers determine which activities count as off-the-job training and a myth-busting document to counter five common myths.

In addition, the National Apprenticeship Service has released a guide to provide employers of all sizes and sectors provide effective support for apprentices aged 16 to 24. It includes:

  • Steps employers can take to make their recruitment practices accessible for young people
  • Examples of on-the-job support for young apprenticeships in the workplace
  • Information on sources of additional funding which employers can use to support young apprentices
