The beginning of October 2014 sees a rise in the National Minimum Wage and the minimum wage for apprentices.
A rise in the national apprentice minimum wage is now in action.
Apprentices who are aged 16 to 18 and those aged 19 or over and in their first year of their apprenticeship will now be entitled to a minimum wage of £3.50 per hour.
All other apprentices are entitled to receive the National Minimum Wage for their age, which has also risen to £5.60 for 18- to 20-year-olds, and to £7.05 for those aged 21 and over.
Many employers do still choose to pay their apprentices above the minimum wage, so it’s quite possible that your salary for an Intermediate Apprenticeship, Advanced Apprenticeship or Higher Apprenticeship will tot up to a much higher figure.
