Earn while you learn
Apprenticeships allow you to learn the right skills, gain great work experience and earn a wage.
We train approximately 2,000 apprentices over 30 occupational areas. Our apprentices are employed at over 1,000 companies throughout West Yorkshire.
The current National Minimum Wage rate for all apprentices under 19, and apprentices 19+ that are in their first year of their Apprenticeship, is £3.90 per hour.
You will normally work around 30 hours per week, and no more than 40 hours (if you are under 18), which includes any training time at college (off the job) as well as on the job with your employer.
You must be paid for all the time you spend training, regardless of whether it’s at college or on the job.
Apprentices are also not required to pay any course fees, however, you may be required to buy course books, tools, equipment, uniform or other items needed for your course/job, depending on your Apprenticeship.
