You are entitled to the National Minimum Wage for Apprentices.  This is currently £3.50 per hour but is reviewed by the Government every year in October.

This rate applies to apprentices aged 16 to 18 and those aged 19 or over who are in their first year.

You must be paid at least the minimum wage rate for your age if you’re an apprentice aged 19 or over and have completed your first year.

You must be paid for:

  • your normal working hours (minimum 30 hours per week)
  • training that’s part of your apprenticeship (usually one day per week)

You’ll also get at least 20 days paid holiday per year, plus bank holidays.
