What are Apprenticeships?

Apprenticeships are an excellent way of gaining qualifications and workplace experience. As an employee, you can earn as you learn and gain practical skills from the workplace. All employed Apprentices get a wage.

£4.30 is the national minimum Apprentice rate (April 2021), for Apprentices under 19 or 19 or over and in the first year of their apprenticeship.

Some employers will pay Apprentices more than the National Minimum Wage.
