Here at Hawk we understand the challenges that learners face when it comes to managing time for off-the-job learning. Whilst on an apprenticeship programme, it is mandatory for learners to complete 20% off-the job learning. We spoke to some of our current learners to find out how off-the-job learning benefits them:
- By having protected time to do your apprenticeship work it allows for better time management meaning that learners feel less overwhelmed.
- Learners are able to give 100% of their focus to their apprenticeship work without having to worry about falling behind with their job.
- It is easy for a learner to get help from their manager with their apprenticeship work if required as it is completed during working hours so the support is available.
- Helps to maintain work-life balance as learners don’t have to complete work outside of working hours.
- Off-the-job learning allows learners to have time to reflect on their learning and activities, making them more efficient in the tasks that they perform.
