I've been working as a graphic design apprentice for the past 10 months. Part of the requirement for me to pass is to take 20% off the job training. My line-manager initially asked me if I could work for a bit then they would give me the 20% off that I need. The gist of it is that after repeatedly asking for it they have flat out told me they won't be giving it to me that I have to do it at work in my free-time, this wouldn't be a problem but my line-manager has been overloading me with work so I never have free time to do it. I end up having to do my mandatory weekly apprenticeship tasks (for my apprenticeship provider) at home during my own time. I've been complaining to my learning coach (from the apprenticeship provider) and he has said he would speak to my manager. My manager is generally been pretty aggressive and has been bullying me (at least what I think is bullying), getting angry and telling me off in-front of colleagues if I'm not doing something exactly how she wants it done.
But recently I have taken a heavier stance on the fact that I need the 20% off to do my training and my manager has started getting more aggressive to me telling I am not reliable. After a weekly one to one just yesterday I asked whats happening with my 20% off for training and was told they won't be giving it to me and that I have to do it at work (but still overload me so I don't have time) and said that the only reason I am still working there is because she is protecting me and that everyone on our team thinks thats I "dont contribute enough" & "dont care about the company".
What are my options, I am not enjoying myself and I believe my manager has a history of this as 2 other people that used to be on our team have quit in very short time spans. I'm pretty sure they are breaking the law and my managers behaviour has started affecting me mentally and physically with her downright abusive behaviour.
My biggest concern is the fact that they are potentially breaking the law by not giving me 20% off the job training. While I will be looking for a new job there is the fact that they are (probably) breaking the law and I feel I can't just let them just get away without repercussions.
