Working as an apprentice – your rights
If you are an apprentice it is easy to focus on the fact that you are there to learn, and to forget that you are also an employee. This means that you have all the usual rights of an employee including:
- paid holidays
- rest breaks
- sick pay
- limited working hours
This information is intended to give you some idea of your rights and your employer’s duties and responsibilities.
