Increase in National Minimum Wage for apprentices

29 September 2015     JTL

The National Minimum Wage for apprentices will increase by 57p an hour from the start of October 2015.

The increase will see the minimum hourly wage for apprentices rise to £3.30. This represents the largest ever increase in the National Minimum Wage for apprentices, and also halves the gap between this total and the National Minimum Wage rate for 16 to 17 year olds, which will be £3.87 an hour from October 2015.

When these increases were first announced back in March of this year, former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said: “If you work hard, the government is behind you all the way.

“Whether you’re on low pay or starting your dream career, through an apprenticeship, you will get more support to help you go further and faster.”
