I am often discussing the benefits of apprenticeships with young people I work with and clearing up the things heard about them that aren’t true, so I hope this information helps. Most recent figures show there are 22,000 apprentices under 19 years of age in the UK. That’s a lot of apprentices. Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsey, Sir Alex Ferguson and Elvis Presley started out as apprentices!

It’s good to have a rough idea of what money you can earn or are entitled to when looking for a job. Starting a course or apprenticeship can be expensive, transport in particular. It’s great to aim for the sky and it’s fine if you want to earn lots of money but you also need to be realistic about salaries and what to expect when looking for work or entering training.
