As an apprentice you are entitled to earn at least the national minimum apprentice wage. Many employers tend to reward apprentices that perform well during their apprenticeship as they develop new skills and gain experience.
With an apprenticeship you are being paid to gain more skills and knowledge and face new experiences and challenges. Once you have completed your apprenticeship you will have laid down the foundations of a career in your chosen industry, giving you a chance to gain a more senior role with your employer, or find alternative employment.
Some employers will provide you with an opportunity to continue training or working towards a more advanced qualification equivalent to a university degree.
You will also benefit from:
- Being paid to complete your qualification (i.e. paid to attend college)
- Paid holidays
- Gaining valuable industry experience in your chosen profession
- Learning new skills, which will look great on your CV!
Some employers may invite you to take part in a short work trial before offering you an apprenticeship. This can be a great way of showing your future employer what you can offer to the company.
If for any reason you are not successful in the apprenticeship you have applied for, a member of our team will contact you with other relevant vacancies.
