All incremental progression and percentage salary increases are subject to affordability and ILG reserves the right to cease incremental progression should it be deemed necessary. Those employees paid in accordance with point two or three are expected to maintain the percentages required to achieve the salary increase, those that do not do that, following adequate warning, will revert to the preceding salary point. The current National Minimum Wage for an apprentice is £3.50 an hour. This rate applies to apprentices under 19 and those aged 19 or over who are in their first year. Apprentices must be paid at least the minimum wage rate for their age if they are aged 19 or over and have completed their first year. The minimum wage rates are £5.60 an hour for 18-20 year olds and £7.05 for anyone aged 21 and over. Apprentices are paid for their normal working hours and training that’s part of their apprenticeship (usually one day per week).
