APPRENTICES IN FIRST JOB EARN ALMOST £4,000 MORE THAN GRADUATES

In a survey researching opportunities available to apprentices in comparison to graduates conducted by the team at ‘notgoingtouni’ website, results revealed apprentices had increased earnings compared to graduates.

According to the poll, the average university graduate had a starting salary of £14,734, whilst those who had completed an apprenticeship had a starting salary of £18,463.

The poll of 2,614 young British adults also revealed only 8% of respondents who completed an apprenticeship wished they had undertaken a degree, whilst 33% of those who had graduated from university wished they’d embarked on an apprenticeship. When asked to state why, 31% said “to save getting in to debt” and 24% said “full-time education wasn’t for me.”
