When you start an apprenticeship, you are essentially hired by a business. This means you have the same work rights as everyone else and cannot be exploited by your employer.
Even though you will be taught during your apprenticeship, you will be paid regularly and have the right to holidays, appropriate working hours, and rest breaks.
Do you get paid weekly on an apprenticeship?
Even though you are on an apprenticeship programme, you are still considered an employee and paid a regular wage. This money will be paid to you weekly or monthly depending on your contract, and you must pay tax and national insurance on it.
