new OTJ calculation


I am, as i am sure others are, delighted that the OTJ is now a set 6 hrs per week but i thought the annual leave weeks no longer had to be deducted but i see the new "training plan (commitment statement)" has the AL deduction still in so is it in or out?!

Very much still in

P43.2 When calculating the required amount of off-the-job training, the apprentice’s statutory leave entitlement must be deducted. Employees who work a 5-day week receive at least 28 days paid leave (20 days annual leave plus 8 bank holidays); this is the statutory leave entitlement referred to in this paragraph and is the equivalent of 5.6 weeks of holiday.
