Embedding apprenticeship off-the-job training

06 / 09 / 2018

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.
