When do we get paid?
You will be paid monthly on the 23rd of each month.

Do I get paid expenses? ​
Yes, the expenses policy will be shared with you during your induction. You will be paid expenses for accommodation and subsistence when at college.

Will I get a uniform?

How much contact would parents/guardians have? ​

What if I am struggling with the workload?
You will be mentored and managed closely, so any concerns will be discussed immediately with yourself and with both college/unversity and site mentors. We aim to set you up for success and only invite you to start on the apprenticeship if you are academically capable. Our chosen provider impressed us with their care and support personally and academically.

Will I be safe?
Health & Safety is a priority within Hovis and you will go through risk assessments and site inductions to ensure you and those around you remain safe.
