As employees, apprentices earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills.
If you are entering work for the ﬁrst time, you will start earning from day one of your Apprenticeship. All apprentices receive at least £3.70 per hour, but the average is much higher, between £190 and £280 per week.
Intermediate Apprenticeships. Intermediate Apprentices work towards a qualification at Level 2 and English and maths skills. Many include a technical certificate, a qualification that assesses your work-related knowledge and understanding.
Advanced Apprenticeships. As an Advanced Apprentice, you can aim for a supervisory, technical or management role. Advanced Apprentices work towards a qualification at Level 3 as well as English and maths. People with an Advanced Level Apprenticeship earn on average over £100,000 more over the course of their career, all without the costs associated with getting a Degree.
