What is the pay?
We pay our apprentices the National Living Wage for those aged 23 and over and the National Minimum Wage for those of least school leaving age.
How long are apprenticeships?
The length of an apprenticeship can be anything from 12 to 48 months depending on the standard being undertaken and the level of apprenticeship. Each training provider will also deliver an apprenticeship over different time frames.
What is the levy?
As our wage bill is over £3 million per year, they are required to pay an apprenticeship levy. The levy will pay for the apprenticeship programme to be undertaken by the apprentice. This is all funded by Plymouth Community Homes.
