Apprenticeships are offered at two levels:

All apprentices will gain a national vocational qualification, functional skills in English, maths and ICT, and in some cases, a technical certificate.

Yes.   New entrants to the labour market receive an apprenticeship salary.  Existing employees receive their salary and are able to access funding to support their training.
