Apprentices must now be paid a minimum training wage
Tuesday 26 October 2010
Since 1st October 2010 the National Minimum Wage (NMW) has been applied to Apprenticeship schemes. It is a requirement that apprentices are being paid at least £2.50 per hour for all of the time they are on their Apprenticeship. This includes time working plus the time spent training.
Any existing Apprentices currently on a Government funded Apprenticeship can continue to receive a wage of at least £95 a week for the remainder of their training
