Apprenticeship FAQ's

An apprenticeship is a structured programme specific to your chosen industry, allowing you to gain knowledge and experience leading to a successful career. In a paid role, you will complete a mixture of on and off the job training provided by industry expect enabling you to gain the right qualifications to match your chosen occupation. 

The current minimum wage for an apprentice is £4.15 per hour in the first year. Apprentices over the age of 19, and into their second of third year of training will be paid the national minimum wage. Pay is paid directly by the employer, and in many cases employers pay above this rate.

The duration of an apprenticeship is based on the level of knowledge and technical skills that are required to qualify and prepare you for your chosen occupation; typically this period ranges from 12 to 18 months.

Vacancies are advertised on behalf of employers on the National Apprenticeship Site, and on the ITEC NE website.
