Things to consider

From the 1st April 20202 the National Minimum Wage rate (NMW) for apprentices is £4.81 for young people aged 16-18 and those aged over 19 in the first year of their Apprenticeship. The new NMW applies to time working plus time spent training as this is also part of the Apprenticeship. Anyone not covered by the age category above will be entitled to the NMW appropriate to their age.

Training on the Apprenticeships Programme for 16 to 18 year olds is a priority and fully-funded by Government.

Training for Apprenticeships for those over this age is part funded, with employers expected to make a 5% contribution for all learners that are 19+

You will be required to complete an application form sent to you via email, and take part in a Pre-screening video interview with one of TNB Skills Training advisers, before your details are passed to the employer to ensure you meet their criteria so please expect an email/call.
