Pay them as much as you like although the national minimum wage for apprentices is:

  • £3.30 an hour for apprentices under 19 years of age
  • £3.30 for apprentices 19 and over in their first year of the apprenticeship, thereafter the national minimum wage fro their age
  • Apprentices over 21 and not in their first year of their apprenticeship need to be paid the adult national minimum wage - £6.70

Apprenticeships need to be a minimum of 12 months in duration. Some apprenticeships take longer to complete and the duration is also determined by the pace the apprentice works at.

We can help and we might even be able to support with funding. Call us on 0800 101 901 today for a discussion of your training needs. We look forward to hearing from you.
