Your wage as an apprentice is determined by the industrial award you are paid under. This will be different for each person depending on a number of factors, including the industry you will be working in, your age and how long you have been out of school. Remember that an apprenticeship is about learning the skills and knowledge needed to be qualified in a trade. This means that you are currently training to be qualified, and will not earn as much as those who are fully qualified. Once you complete your apprenticeship, you will find that you are able to earn quite a lot more. An apprenticeship is an investment in your future.
