How much do you have to pay an Apprentice?

The average pay for Apprentices in London is £250 per week. How much you pay an Apprentice is entirely up to you, as it is for any of your other employees. We recommend paying an apprentice based in London a weekly wage of at least £200 per week to attract and retain the best talent.


What are employers expected to do?

Hillingdon Training will work with you to discuss the requirements of each individual learner and the units that are most applicable to their job role. Each learner will have a Training Assessor who monitors their progress throughout the course.

As an employer you are expected to treat your apprentice as you would any other member of staff. That includes ensuring they have a contract of employment.

A simple way to develop and retain your apprentice is through allocating them a mentor. The mentor will be someone within your organisation who can support the apprentice through their qualification.  When you have recruited an apprentice your Hillingdon Trainings' Training Assessor will plan all of the training and assessment required with you.
