LEARNER FAQs

WHAT IS AN APPRENTICESHIP?

An apprenticeship is a government funded programme combining practical training in a paid job with theoretical study in the classroom. Designed for individuals over the age of 16, as an apprentice you will finish with a nationally recognised qualification and be equipped with the skills and experience for future employment. Experiencing new challenges, an apprenticeship is a real alternative to getting onto the career ladder without concerns over debt from attending university.

HOW MUCH WILL I GET PAID?

As an apprentice, you are entitled to the National Minimum Wage. This is set at an hourly rate of £4.15, however many employers choose to pay more than this or increase the rate after the employee has been within the company for a certain amount of time.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO COMPLETE MY APPRENTICESHIP?

Depending on the course and level you are working towards, apprenticeships generally last anywhere between 1-4 years.
