How Many Hours for Apprenticeship

An apprenticeship is a simple job training programme that helps you earn a living while studying and being highly skilled in your chosen trade at the end of the programme.

Apprentices will work a minimum of 30 hours per week and up to 40 hours a week.

Off-the-job time spent in college or education is considered.

Part-time apprenticeships with at least 16 hours a week can be agreed upon with the employer, for example, when apprentices have caring responsibilities.
