As employees, Apprentices earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. Apprentices receive training to achieve nationally recognised qualifications. This is usually a mix of on- and off-the job training (at your place of work and at your Apprenticeship Provider premises) and maybe undertaken on a day release basis. Anyone living in England, over 16 and not in full time education can apply*.
Apprenticeships can take between one and four years to complete depending on the type of Apprenticeship chosen, the Apprentices ability and the industry sector. If you are not already employed and paid a wage, the National Minimum Wage for an Apprentice is currently £3.50 per hour, as an example an Apprentice who works 40 hours a week will earn £140 as a minimum. However, many Apprentices can earn significantly more. If you are already employed, prior to commencing your Apprenticeship, your wage amount will not be affected.
