At present in England, all apprentices over the age of 19 are entitled to the national minimum wage after they have completed the first year of their Apprenticeship.

Apprentices under the age of 19 or in the first year of their training are currently entitled to an Apprenticeship National Minimum Wage, which is set by the Low Pay Commission on an annual basis. The current rate is £3.40 per hour as of October 2016 (for apprentices aged 16 to 18 and those aged 19 or over who are in their first year. Other Apprentices are entitled to the national minimum wage for their age). This will rise to £3.50 from April 2017. 

More information can be found on the national minimum wage and living wage page.
