As an apprentice, you’re employed to do a real job whilst you train, developing new skills and obtaining the knowledge needed to succeed in your chosen career. For a minimum of 12 months, the apprenticeship will combine hands-on work with learning and studying at college for at least 20% of your time.
The National Minimum Apprenticeship wage went up to £4.30 from £4.15 per hour on 1st April 2021. Any questions, please get in touch! We are here to help.
