National Apprenticeship Week 2023

National Apprenticeship Week (6 to 12 February 2023) casts a spotlight on the positive impact that apprenticeships make to individuals, businesses and the wider economy. West Suffolk College is proud to be hosting a series of events across National Apprenticeship Week to celebrate.

With over 1,700 apprentices already enrolled across 65 different apprenticeship programmes, we are experts in our field. Whether you are looking to take on an apprentice in your business, or begin an apprenticeship programme yourself, you are in the right place.

Register for an event

 

Apprentices complete a structured programme of training specific to the needs of your industry. They can progress from introductory courses to advanced and higher level study equivalent to degree study, but unlike purely academic learning, all their knowledge is tuned to your needs.

The methods of learning vary by subject requiring college attendance either one day a week or once a month. In addition to college teaching, we support learners on site at the your premises via regular review meetings and assessment observations.

Government funding is available to support training and employers can also potentially access a government incentive of £1,000 if they recruit a new Apprentice aged 16-18.

Apprentice minimum wage

The national minimum wage for apprentices is £4.81 an hour. This rate applies to apprentices under 19 and those aged 19 or over who are in their first year. Apprentices must be paid at least the national minimum wage rate if they’re an apprentice aged 19 or over and have completed their first year.
