What It Will Cost to host an Apprentice?

SEAC is an Apprenticeship Training Agency (ATA) and one of the top apprenticeship companies in the country, recognised by the National Apprenticeship Service and on their national register of approved ATAs. We ensure our costs are competitive and fair and are based around what the apprentice is to be paid as well as how may apprentices you wish to take on placement from us.

As of April 1st 2017 the Apprentice minimum wage is £3.50 per hour

The new rate will apply to:

  • Apprentices under 19
  • Apprentices aged 19 and over, but in the first year of their apprenticeship
  • There is flexibility if you wish to pay above the minimum wage - we will pay the apprentice as per your instructions
You will be responsible for the cost of the Apprentice's wage.
In addition, our charge to you will cover:
  • Statutory deductions
  • Holiday pay of 5.6 weeks (4 weeks plus 8 public holidays)
  • Service/administration fee
  • A contribution to apprentice training and assessment delivery as required (see below)

The charge for the delivery of the apprenticeship training and assessment will depend on the age of the apprentice that you take on placement. In most cases there will be no charge for apprentices aged 16-18 on their start date. However, you will be asked to contribute 10% of the total cost of the training and assessment delivery for apprentices aged 19 plus. The cost of the delivery will vary according to the apprenticeship framework or standard to be delivered and we will advise you of this from the outset.
