This is not always the case, but you should be confident that you are a desirable employee in your chosen industry.
Are the apprenticeships paid for positions?
Yes, the starting salary for each apprenticeship is given in the course information, so you know upfront what you will be earning. For example, the 4-year Craft Apprenticeship program has a starting salary of £12,381 rising to £26,540 upon completion of the apprenticeship. To the length of the apprenticeships, you also qualify for a pension.
