The Basics

The Creative Pioneers London Apprenticeship has been an amazing experience and a fast track to an amazing career
Piers Batchelor M&C Saatchi Mobile Apprentice

The Creative Pioneers London Apprenticeship lasts for a minimum of one year and enables your apprentice to be trained and to study for one day a week. The apprentice gains a nationally recognised qualification whilst learning new skills, becoming more productive and competent in the job role.

All apprentices must be employed for at least 30 hours a week, the apprenticeship minimum wage is £2.73 per hour for the first year of the apprenticeship. However we strongly recommend that you pay your apprentice a liveable wage taking into consideration the living and travel costs in London. Most of our apprentices are typically paid between £150- £300 per week.

We ask for your commitment to enable your apprentice to achieve their qualification by allowing them a paid day a week to work on their portfolio work and that you provide them with good management and supervision, as with any new employee.
