Apprentices

We do not count apprentices when looking at the number of people living in a property for council tax purposes.

An apprentice is a person employed to learn a trade or profession. There is no age limit to qualify, but the apprentice must be employed on a low wage and be on a training programme for a qualification accredited by the National Council for Vocational Qualifications. The salary must be substantially less than the amount the apprentice will receive after getting the qualification, and no more than £195 a week.
