Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Are you still getting any training?
Apologies for not getting back to you sooner, I experienced some temporary connection issues and could not get back on the site until now. All appears to be resolved now so I can continue dealing with your query.
An apprentice is someone who is offered a work-based training programme, which lead to nationally recognised qualifications. Once the training finishes and the relevant qualifications are obtained the person is no longer an apprentice – they would become an employee or a contractor, depending on how they are employed.
As an apprentice you are also an employee but once you finish the apprenticeship training you are no longer an apprentice but remain an employee if you continue working for them. So you will have normal employment rights, such as receiving the Minimum Wage for workers as opposed to receiving the minimum wage for apprentices. This is probably the main difference between being employed as an apprentice and a ‘normal’ employee.
