20% of the apprenticeship training must teach new knowledge, skills and behaviours that will contribute to not only the achievement of an apprenticeship but the role the apprentice is working towards.
The 20% of apprenticeship training is calculated using the apprentices contracted employment hours across the whole apprenticeship. The apprentice’s trainer will work with you to identify opportunities to fulfil this obligation. They will mainly include:
- Engage in workshops and webinars with their trainer assessor.
- Independent learning to deepen their understanding.
- One-to-one sessions to address specific learning needs.
- Attend quarterly professional webinars with early years experts.
Naturally occurring activities:
- Stay updated on policies affecting their role.
- Participate in team meetings to enhance collaboration.
- Take part in reviews and appraisals for continuous improvement.
- Undertake planning and observations under guidance.
Specifically targeted tasks:
- Observe and engage in daily routines and activities.
- Shadow experienced colleagues to learn best practices.
- Contribute to research projects to enhance their knowledge.
- Meet key people within the setting, including SENCO and DSL.
- Receive coaching and mentoring within the workplace.
- Read and review policies and procedures, witnessing their implementation in action.
Our experienced trainers will work closely with your apprentice to identify opportunities for off-the-job training. We understand that every learner is unique, and our tailored approach ensures that our apprenticeship training is a meaningful and enriching experience.
