  1. We've updated the off-the-job materials. The guide, commitment statement, flowchart, and mythbuster have all been updated.
  2. We have published a revised off-the-job training guide and commitment statement template. We have also added a link to a survey to help us understand the availability of off-the-job training information and how the policy is working in practice.
  3. Updated the off-the-job guidance attachement - In response to feedback since this document was issued on Friday 22 March 2019, paragraph 69 and Annex A are redacted and under review, in relation to the use of 30 hours. Providers should continue to work to the apprenticeship funding rules and not change any training plans with learners. We will publish a further update next week.
  4. The off-the-job training guidance document has been updated which provides the policy context and some best-practice examples around off-the-job training. A commitment statement template has been added to this page. The new template has been produced following requests from a number of training providers, particularly those that are new to delivering apprenticeships.
  5. First published.
