How much does an apprentice/trainee get paid?

How much you are paid can vary between the different types of training and different employers. But remember, with an apprenticeship, you earn while you learn - there's no student loan!

Because your employer is investing a lot of time and money into your training, you may be paid a training wage. Find out more about the different wage rates on the Employment New Zealand website.
