Flexible training options

You can choose whether your apprenticeship scheme provides training through a local provider on a day-release basis, through self-study or via online sessions or a combination of all three.

ACCA and the National Apprenticeship Service can help you organise a scheme that suits the requirements of your business.

On-the-job training

Apprentices will be entitled to off-the-job training that equates to approximately 20% of their working week. This can be through on-site training, a local training provider or through study time for desk-based and online sessions, or a combination of these.

The training you provide through your scheme can include relevant theory teaching through:

  • lectures
  • role playing
  • simulation exercises
  • online learning
  • manufacturer training
  • practical training
  • shadowing
  • mentoring
  • industry visits
  • attendance at competitions
  • learning support
  • time spent writing assessments/assignments
