Apprenticeship salaries vary depending on the level of the course and what work you are expected to carry out on a day to day basis. Typically though, an Intermediate apprentice will earn between £8,000 – £12,000 in the first year, and an Advanced or Higher apprentice can between £12,000 – £18,000. No matter your level or work requirements, you will always be paid at least the minimum wage rate for apprentices, which is currently £3.90 per hour.
