hours and pay
Hours and pay….

Employment must be for 16 hours per week or more, although it is expected that this will be greater than 30 hours per week

Aspects of the employment agreement like how many hours an apprentice is expected to work and what breaks they are entitled to is determined by the employer and the apprentice

The National Minimum Wage for apprentices applies to all apprentices aged under 19; and apprentices aged 19 or over in the first year of their Apprenticeship

The apprentice minimum wage is £2.50 per hour and applies to time working, plus time spent training that is part of the Apprenticeship

The actual level of pay is on average £170 per week

return on investment research
Return on Investment research

Apprenticeships will boost the Hertfordshire economy to the tune of £386 million within six years, if every business hires just one local apprentice, according to ‘Return on Investment’ (ROI) research which allows individual firms to calculate the potential financial returns gained from investing in apprentices…….

The easy-to-use online calculator is available free at www.apprenticeships.org.uk and takes into consideration factors such as salaries and anticipated training costs, when forecasting the impact an apprentice can make to a company’s bottom line.

In 2007, a series of in-depth studies with large, national employers was undertaken to establish hard, measurable evidence of the bottom line business benefits of Apprenticeships in the workplace.

There were some striking results……
