    Course FAQs

    Will employers just use me for the jobs they do not want to do?

    No, you may start your apprenticeship completing basic tasks, but the whole point of your apprenticeship is to develop into a well-rounded member of staff. We will meet with your employer every eight weeks to make sure that they are supporting your development.

    Will I earn less money doing an apprenticeship rather than working full-time?

    The apprenticeship national minimum wage is currently £3.90 per hour, however, many employers offer more than this for their positions, as they want to attract high-quality candidates to their company. Every vacancy lists how much the wage is, so be sure to check these carefully to make sure that you are happy with how much the employer is offering.
