Today the UK government unveiled the largest ever cash increase to the minimum wage, including the apprentice rate!
The announcement means that minimum wage rates will increase from April 2024, with more than a 20% increase on the minimum apprentice rate. This will be the largest ever increase in the minimum wage in cash terms and the first time rates increased by more than £1.
As a champion of the value that apprentices add to businesses and the economy, we are delighted to see our apprentices receive this recognition.
If you are an apprentice employer and are curious about how this affects your existing or future apprenticeship programme, please get in touch with our Careers Development Officer, Robert Deignan. to discuss.
