Is an Apprenticeship right for my child?

As a parent, you will want the best possible start for your child’s career. Whilst there any many options for school leavers one that is still perhaps over looked is apprenticeships. Times have changed when it comes to completing apprenticeships, no longer are they just for traditional trades.

 

An apprenticeship is recognised as an actual job meaning not only do you get the opportunity to earn whilst you learn but you also gain a national recognised qualification.

What are the benefits?

  • Earning a salary
  • Receiving paid holiday
  • Increased future earning potential
  • Excellent progression opportunities

The national minimum wage for apprenticeships is £3.70 for the first year regardless of age, rising to £4.20 under 18 year olds, £5.90 for 18 to 20 year olds and £7.38 for 21 and over. However, some higher apprenticeships do pay up to £500 per week and it is quite common for employers to pay more than the minimum.

Apprenticeships are available for anyone over the age of 16 and living in England. Once your apprenticeship is over it is likely the employer will keep you on or if you wish you can move on to another employer.
