It is understandable that recent unprecedented times can be stressful for some apprenticeship learners, especially during lockdown, when there is not much to go out for. However, either being on furlough or working from home does not mean that you need to stop learning.
If you are an apprentice who is currently on furlough, you may have seen that Government guidelines say you are still allowed to participate in training. That is why we are encouraging all of our apprentices to continue to work towards their off the job training.
Our Development Tutors are keen to keep all of our apprentices motivated by supporting them through our online courses and remote training sessions. Not only will this be good for your mental health and wellbeing, but it will also mean that you will have less off the job training to complete when you get back into your usual working routine.
Below we have highlighted some of our apprentices who have expressed their thoughts on why continuing to complete their off the job training during the current climate has been important.
For more information on how to continue your learning, please contact your Development Tutor direct or email our Apprenticeship Manager email@example.com
