Things to consider

Childcare is a very demanding industry with long hours and early starts. It requires you to be active for the majority of the day. It is also a very rewarding job as you will have an invaluable impact of the development of the children. From 1st October 2016 The National Minimum Wage (NMW) rate for apprentices is £3.40 per hour. From April 2017 this rises to £3.50 per hour. This applies to 16-18 year old apprentices and those aged 19 and over in the first year of their Apprenticeship. For all other apprentices the National Minimum wage appropriate to their age applies. The Minimum Wage for Apprentices applies to time spent on the job plus time spent training.
