Are your digital marketing apprentices receiving the new national minimum wage? This is great news for apprentices looking for digital marketing apprenticeship jobs.

It is that time of year where the national minimum wage increases and this is no different for Apprentice's. The national minimum wage for an Apprentice has increased 20 pence per hour from £3.70 to £3.90.

Apprentices are only entitled to the apprentice rate if they are aged under 19 or they are in their first year of their apprenticeship. If an apprentice is aged 19 or over and they have completed the first year of their apprenticeship they are entitled to the minimum wage for their age.

For a full overview of all increases please visit - www.gov.uk/national-minimum-wage-rates

Safeguarding in Apprenticeships - Are you doing enough?

Last week I attended the NSPCC Designated Safeguarding Officer 2-day course held at their Education and Training Centre in Leicester.
