Are you sending them to college? if yes get in touch with the citb. apprentices dont come into the minimum wage brackets but im not sure if that changes at 21, i used to pay mine 79 just below some bracket regarding tax he went college once a week, the more qualifications they gain ie the longer they stay like 1,2 or 3 years the more grants you will get. Also if your subbing to these firms that deduct a percentage for citb you dont have to pay coz your in it and depending what you earn you wont pay them a percentage. It could of changed im talkin a few years ago.Hi
Im looking to expand and take on an apprentice but just wondering what the going rate ids these days? I know when I did mine (about 10 years ago) I was paid about 120 a week.
