Financial Benefits

All apprenticeships are full time, so you will work a minimum of 30 hours a week. You may also have the opportunity for overtime and your hours may be split over shifts. You will receive the national minimum wage for apprentices, click here for the current level.

As an apprentice you are also eligible for the NUS Apprentice extra, the discount card for UK Apprentices. Find out more here. Many local transport authorities offer discounts for apprentices, for example in London, if you’re aged 16 or 17 you can apply for a 16+ Zip Oyster photocard. For Apprentices living in London there’s also the Apprentice Oyster card.
