Frequently Asked Questions
As an apprentice, you will be working in a real job where you will be employed by a company, have a contract of employment, get paid a salary and be entitled to all of the statutory benefits such as holiday and sick pay.
The Government sets the standard minimum wage for apprentices at £3.40 per hour, although this is subject to change. Check here for the latest information on rates of pay.
An apprenticeship qualification tells future employers that you have the employability skills that they are looking for – things like good timekeeping, good communication skills, being a team-player, professional standards, understanding policies and procedures of the workplace etc. These are the types of employability skills that you develop as part of your apprenticeship to help you become an effective professional.
