Setting Wages in Your Registered Apprenticeship Program

Abstract

Determining apprentice compensation is a key part of every apprenticeship program. Wage schedules set an apprentice’s compensation as they progress and gain skills through the apprenticeship. This fact sheet provides guidance for apprenticeship program sponsors and employers by reviewing important elements of wage schedules, sharing examples, and offering tips. By setting an appropriate wage progression, programs can reward apprentices for gaining skills, motivate them to gain competencies, and prepare them for all parts of an occupation.
