Am I too old for an Apprenticeship? Digital Marketing

Is there an age limit to do an apprenticeship?

In short, no. An apprenticeship is intended as an entry-level position for those without experience in a given field. It's a very common misconception that apprentices are for young people, whereas there isn't an age limit whatsoever. Don't let age deter you from pursuing an apprenticeship; it's meant to be an easy access point into a sector you have no experience in.

How does age affect apprenticeship pay?

The generic apprenticeship minimum wage is £4.30 per hour (set to increase to £4.81 in April).

Many employers choose to pay more than the minimum wage. Some of the employers we work with pay up to £8 per hour. You can see vacancies here

After 12 months in an apprenticeship, the apprentice is entitled to the national minimum wage (see below).
