In this case study, we look at how Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMMT) has worked with line managers to offer apprentices a minimum of 20 per cent off-the-job training.
With each apprenticeship requiring a minimum of 20 per cent off-the-job training, the publication looks at how the apprenticeship team successfully worked in collaboration with line managers to ensure it could be accommodated. This was done by understanding:
- what off-the-job training means
- what can be counted towards off-the-job training
- how the apprenticeship team and managers can work together to support and access off-the-job training.
Learn more about how GMMT has embedded apprenticeships into its workforce strategy and now sees the apprenticeship levy as a dedicated training budget which the trust can use to attract the local workforce, develop staff and improve retention.
