There is strong government support for apprenticeships. In most cases all of the vetting and training aspects of an apprenticeship are paid for by the government. It’s free to advertise an apprenticeship on a national level and the services we provide in recruiting and supporting apprenticeships are also covered. Although the minimum wage for apprentices varies depending on age, they are normally lower than the national minimum wage to account for the extra support they will need. However, there are significant changes to how apprenticeships are funded starting in 2017, so get in touch to find out more about how we can help you fill your skills gap.
