Indicate the extent of non-company training that the trainee is to receive. The declaration of commitment is one of the two documents signed before the start of the training, the other being the training contract. 5. In certain circumstances, apprenticeship may be completed without an apprenticeship contract To begin legal apprenticeship training (when a person begins his apprenticeship), the law requires that there be an apprenticeship contract. The two conditions under which an apprentice may follow a legal apprenticeship without an apprenticeship contract are (i) when he holds the position of police officer or apprentice of a religious organization; or (ii) they have been dismissed after being required to run less than six months of their practical time. 9. Indication of the scope of off-company trainingThis is a requirement of the Apprenticeships (Miscellaneous Commissions) Regulations 2017. Off-company training is an essential condition for apprenticeship and, in order to meet the funding rules of the Agency for the Financing of Education and Qualifications, this must be at least 20% of the trainee`s paid hours over the total duration of the training (up to the gateway of standards). Training outside the company may be provided by a trainee only during his normal working time. Mathematics and English, up to and including Level 2, are not part of the minimum requirements of 20% outside the workplace.
The scope of non-company training should be agreed with the main provider. The provider must take into account the relevant prior knowledge of the trainee and reduce the content and duration of off-company training, to the extent necessary to achieve professional skills. All apprenticeships must have a minimum duration of 12 months and include at least 20% non-company training10. Definition of off-the-job training Out-of-company training is defined as training that the apprentice receives during the apprentice`s normal working hours to achieve apprenticeship standards or frameworks. It is not training that the apprentice receives for the sole purpose of enabling the apprentice to perform the work to which the apprenticeship contract refers. For more information, including examples of off-company training, see gov.uk11. The apprenticeship contract does not imply any modification of existing contracts or conditionsNot any training that was provided before 15 January 1, 2018 (date of entry into force of the Apprenticeship (Miscellaneous Provisions) Regulation 2017) is not affected by the additional requirements that must be set out in an apprenticeship contract.. . .
