All apprentices must be paid the national minimum wage (£3.30 for under 19 and first year apprenticeships).
Traineeships last anything from six weeks to a maximum of six months and can include:
• English and Maths support (except people who already have an A*- C in these subjects) to provide the literacy and numeracy skills needed for the workplace.
• Meaningful work experience which provides insight and experience of the world of work and makes students more attractive to potential employers.
