What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a government recognised and approved learning programme, aimed at people over the age of 16. Apprenticeships are an excellent way of training junior members of staff, allowing them to gain hands-on, practical experience while earning a wage.

Apprentices are required to work a minimum of 30 hours per week. However, if they're aged 18 or under, they are not permitted to work more than 40 hours a week, or more than 8 hours a day.

Employers must dedicate 20% of the apprentice's working hours to training  and commit to paying their apprentice the national apprenticeship minimum wage for the first year of their employment.
