Facts about apprenticeships

There are 200 different types of apprenticeships available in over 1200 job roles.

Apprentices can earn over £100,000 more than other workers over their lifetimes

The government has promised funding for over 350, 000 apprenticeships every year.

The National Minimum wage for apprenticeships is £2.73 per hour for apprentices aged 16-18 or those aged 19 and over in the first year of their apprenticeship, however most employers pay more than the minimum wage and the average salary is closer to £170 a week.

Apprenticeships combine on the job training with usually a day release to college or a training centre; some offer block placements over a week or two every so often.

You would gain professional and technical qualifications. You would be expected to work on your English and Maths if you haven’t gained a C at GCSE level, this is usually in the form of functional skills.

You get paid Holiday, a minimum of 20 days a year plus bank holidays, and pension contributions like any other employee at the company.

You will work for a minimum of 30 hours a week.
