Is there a cost for employers?
Like all employees, apprentices must still receive a wage. More information on the National Minimum Wage can be found on GOV.UK.
There is also the cost of the supervision, support and mentoring that you will need to put in place to support the apprentice. These associated costs are not insignificant - however, the National Apprenticeship Service will match employer’s commitment to hiring apprentices by covering in full, or in part, the training costs.
