Allowances and Wages

Allowances and Wages

Apprentices under 19 years or 19 years and over and in the first year of their Apprenticeship are entitled to the minimum Apprentice wage. However, the employer may choose to pay the Apprentice at a higher rate. Once the Apprentice reaches 19 years and has completed the first year of the Apprenticeship the employer must pay the full National Minimum Wage. All other Apprentices are eligible for the full National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage for their age. It is recommended that employers find out what the average wage is for Apprentices within a particular industry, taking in to consideration their age and experience.
