My brother in laws a chippy and he took an apprentice for 20 quid per day the rest is subsidised and you don't have to keep them going if you run out of work if they don't work you don't have to pay them

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.

it is 100 in the first year then 150 in the 2nd year rising to 250 in the 3rd year as in the 3rd year they should be plastering rooms and not a wall here and there.... im 99% certain

when i served my time in 1963 the wage was £2 16s per week , i was considered lucky as it was a 5 year time that had just been reduced from 7 years. labours where never shown anything and did not even have there sandwiches with tradesmen and apprentices

Go to one of the buiding colleges, who have already got nvq boys attending, but will not have a job at the end of it, They should be ready to go, and you can assess the level they are at, and offer them a wage you feel fit, every bodies happy.
