What is OTJ and how do I complete it during my apprenticeship?
OTJ time stands for ‘Off the job’ time and is a requirement for your apprenticeship. To meet the apprenticeship standard in the UK, you must dedicate a minimum of 6 hours per week of your time ‘off the job’ completing your apprenticeship and any activities that go with it. OTJ needs to be formally logged with evidence to show completion of any relevant activities and completed within working hours. In this article, we’ll share examples of OTJ you could complete and top tips to help you stay on track during your apprenticeship.
