Post apprenticeship there are possibilities to progress through the grading structure and adopt additional responsibilities. The organisation has a long history of training apprentices, and also evidence of progression of apprentices post completion of their schemes into senior and critical roles. Apprentices have gone on to reach the highest levels in the Company - to management level and beyond! Things to consider Technician apprentices will have regular access to helicopters and the manufacturing facilities, but spend the majority of their time in an office environment. Technicians, will usually wear 'office attire', only wearing lab coats or overalls when taking part in testing activities (testing aircraft parts and systems.) Apprentices are assigned to a skilled supervisor, who will teach, guide and support the apprentice in their workplace to develop the required skills. The Apprenticeship National Minimum Wage (ANMW): From April 2017 the ANMW was set at £3.50 per hour. This applies to 16-18 year old apprentices and those aged 19 and over in the first year of their Apprenticeship. For all other apprentices the National Minimum wage appropriate to their age applies. The Minimum Wage for Apprentices applies to time spent on the job plus time spent training.
