Note regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19): Due to the nature of our Online and On Campus apprenticeships, with key concepts being taught online through high-quality video lectures, learners are able to continue their studies seamlessly during any college closure. ‘On Campus’ lessons are replaced by remote ‘virtual classroom’ sessions led by college tutors.

Investment in staff training is key for any successful organisation and apprenticeships offer a great opportunity to upskill your workforce. However, apprenticeship delivery is not without its challenges.

The Need for Flexibility

We have worked in partnership with Mindful Education to create a suite of flexible apprenticeships that combine online learning with face-to-face classroom sessions.
Our Online and On Campus apprenticeships have been designed with employers in mind – requiring less time in college than traditional delivery models and minimising disruption in the workplace. This flexible approach means that apprentices can choose how, when and where they want to study.

Online and On Campus – the best of both worlds

Online video lectures are available on demand, and can be viewed from a phone, tablet or computer. Lessons last for around 45 minutes and are accompanied by animations and motion graphics to bring concepts to life. Online study means that apprentices do not need to attend college as frequently as with traditional delivery models.

On campus, apprentices benefit from regular college classes. Experienced college tutors will discuss and reinforce key learning points from online study and are on hand to provide guidance on progress and assessment. Time out of the workplace is reduced thanks to the online learning materials.

“Mindful Education’s accounting apprenticeship has been great for our business. The online learning element means our apprentice is able to log on at any time to study, the analytics allow us to easily track and report on the 20% off-the-job requirement.”

Our Online and On Campus Apprenticeships

The Apprenticeship Levy

Employers with an annual wage bill of over £3 million are required to pay the levy at 0.5% each month. Your levy fund, plus additional government funding, can then be accessed for training and assessment on approved apprenticeship schemes.

Managing the 20% Off-the-job Training Requirement

All apprenticeships, regardless of how they are funded, require the apprentice to spend a minimum of 20% of their apprenticeship on training. But this does not have to mean that apprentices spend one day in every five out of the workplace.
The Online and On Campus apprenticeship model provides greater flexibility as apprentices can log in to study during quiet periods at work. All activity is recorded and counts towards the 20% off-the-job requirement.
