Andy Dunn (Lead Commissioner, Attraction, Retention and Development) introduced this report, stating that an increase in the rate of pay for entry level apprenticeship roles was expected to help to attract suitable and capable applicants, and contribute towards the success of the Council’s apprenticeship programme.


In response to Councillor Gifford, Andy Dunn agreed to provide details of the number of care-experienced young people who had joined the apprenticeship programme. Details would be made available following the meeting.




That the Staff and Pensions Committee approves the proposal to increase the rate of pay for entry level apprenticeship roles from 1 April 2022 to be aligned to the National Minimum Wage rate for 18–20-year-olds (£6.83 per hour/£13,140 per annum).
