Stockperson and Crop Technician apprentices enjoy off the job training

Ten of our Stockperson and Crop Technician apprentices from the Bakewell Matlock area enjoyed their first day of off the job training recently. The training took place at Masson Farm, home of Matlock Meadows ice cream where the apprentices benefitted from learning new knowledge.

What is off the job training?

Off the job training is defined as learning which is undertaken outside of day-to-day work duties and leads towards the achievement of the apprenticeship.

The training must relate directly to the apprenticeship and must contribute towards the apprentices learning. Off the job training must cover 20% of the learners working week which usually equals to one day a week.

Examples of off the job training include online learning, video tutorials, blog reading, mentoring, shadowing another colleague, relevant sector visits and time to collate an apprenticeship portfolio.
