This report presents the finding of the survey into apprentices' pay by sector. In 2004 the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) commissioned BMRB Social Research to conduct an initial baseline study of apprenticeship pay. This study sought to establish the pay received by apprentices and to provide evidence on the differences between different sector frameworks. On completion of this research a commitment was made to conduct a follow up study to evaluate the impact of interventions made as a result of the inter-departmental Review of Financial Support for 16-19 year olds. Employed apprentices aged under 19, or aged 19 and above and in their first year, are exempt from National Minimum Wage requirements. However, from 1 August 2005 all employed apprentices funded by the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) in England must receive a minimum income of £80 per week (exclusive of tips and overtime). One aim of this research was to enable Government to judge the impact of this new LSC contractual requirement in comparison with wages in the original baseline study. As such, the key aims of the second Survey of Apprenticeship Pay were:

  1. What wages are apprentices being paid at the moment
  2. How apprentices' pay vary by age and industry sector
  3. How these factors compare with the baseline survey undertaken in Spring 2005.
