The guidance says: “However the training is delivered, it is important to remember that the apprentice must receive off-the-job training for a minimum of 20% of the time that they are paid to work.” 

The new guidance is intended for “employers that wish to understand the off-the-job training requirements involved in an apprenticeship…and…providers that wish to ensure that they are offering off-the-job training in accordance with the funding rules and policy intent.”
