Personal growth

As an apprentice, you’ll be given time during work hours to complete the learning required for your Apprenticeship outside your day-to-day work environment. This time must be at least 20% of your working hours, and is often called ‘off-the-job training’. Your training can consist of: lectures, online learning, assignments, shadowing, coaching sessions, 1-2-1s, and projects.
