Things to consider

Childcare is a very demanding industry with long hours and early starts. It requires you to be active and is a physically demanding role. It is also a very rewarding job as you will have an invaluable impact of the development of the children. Apprenticeship National Minimum Wage (ANMW): The National Minimum Wage for Apprentices is £3.40 per hour from 1st October 2016. This is the legal minimum pay per hour applying to 16-18 year old apprentices and those aged 19 and over in the first year of their apprenticeship. For apprentices 19 or over who have completed their first year and are continuing their apprenticeship, the National Minimum wage appropriate to their age applies.
