Sizeable increase in pay for Apprentices as part of new National Minimum Wage rates

Sizeable increase in pay for Apprentices as part of new National Minimum Wage rates

​As of 1st October 2015, both new and existing apprentices in the UK will notice a sizeable increase in their hourly wage following the new National Minumum Wage (NMW) rates announced this week. Apprentices will have a 57p increase in their salary to £3.30 per hour making this a much larger increase than what was originally suggested by the Low Pay Commission (LPC) earlier in March 2015.

Of course this is still a minimum NMW rate for apprentices and many employers will want to pay more but it is evidence that apprentices are becoming much more valued within the working industry and that undertaking an apprenticeship is definitely a worthwhile and fantastic route to consider following full time education.
