One of the first things you’ll want to know before choosing whether or not to pursue an apprenticeship is how much you’ll be paid.
An apprentice’s hourly salary is £4.30 per hour on average (median wage). You may be shocked to discover that your employer is required by law to pay you a minimum wage if you are an apprentice.
How much do you earn on a apprenticeship?
Apprentices now receive £4.15 per hour as the national minimum wage.
Individuals aged 16 to 18 and those aged 19 and above, who are in their first year of employment, are eligible for the minimum apprenticeship pay. The national minimum salary for their age should be paid to all other apprentices. Every April, the apprenticeship pay is revised.
