The new apprentice rates, effective from 1 August 2019, are shown below. These take account of changes to Grades B and C agreed by VCEG but do not include the 2019 national pay offer.
New appointments from August 2019 will start on the minimum point for the apprenticeship grade as shown above. They will be eligible for a pay increment on 1 August the following year, subject to a minimum of six months’ service. The revised arrangements start apprentices on a higher salary with a pay increase year-to-year so that incremental progression is smoothed and brought in line with the main pay scales.
