Do You Get Holidays On An Apprenticeship

It is crucial to stress that apprentices are not on “work experience” and should be treated in the same manner as for regular employees in terms of rights, responsibilities, and benefits.

Do you get holidays on an apprenticeship?

Every year, all apprentices in the United Kingdom are entitled to at least 20 days of holiday. This includes the weekends and holidays.

Because the minimum wage for apprentices is lower than full-time workers, benefits such as paid time off are important. Holidays and other perks and the chance to learn on the job and study for certifications may make apprenticeships more desirable — and therefore, more people want to complete them.

Employers should specify the apprenticeship regulations in a training agreement or contract to ensure that everyone is on the same page. This will outline who is eligible for benefits such as holiday time and any procedures for requesting holiday via a line manager.
