The programme requires individuals to attend 6 online workshops spread over a 15 month period.
Apprenticeship programmes require individuals to spend 20% of their working hours towards off the job training to develop new skills, knowledge and behaviours. Despite how this may sound, the time can be spent at the individuals normal place of work on activities which are usually carried out on a day-to-day basis but can be linked to the apprenticeship. The activities can improve the efficiency of the division, in addition to positively impacting motivation and engagement levels.
Activities can include (but not limited to) job shadowing, internal training, meetings, online learning, the completion of assignments and workbooks, and also the business improvement project. The latter can add value to LSE by improving existing processes.
Time spent on off the job training, should be approached in a similar manner to regular staff development training in terms of workload management. Therefore, if there are any associated costs, this should be covered from the existing budget.
Support will be provided by the individuals line manager, the Organisational Learning team and the training provider throughout the full duration of the programme.
