Question:

What do I pay my Appentice?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 25 June 2014, 4:55 PM)
Answer:

The National Minimum Wage for apprentices is £2.68 per hour (from 1-10-13). Many employers prefer to pay more however, and research shows that the average salary is approx £180 per week.  Paying a ‘fair’ wage encourages Apprentices to remain in employment with you. The Welsh Government will fund their training.Further information on Minimum Wage Regulations can be obtained at:

Yr Isafswm Cyflog Cenedlaethol ar gyfer prentisiaid yw £2.68 yr awr (o 1-10-13). Bydd yn well gan lawer o gyflogwyr dalu mwy, fodd bynnag, ac mae ymchwil yn dangos mai tua £180 yr wythnos yw’r cyflog ar gyfartaledd. Bydd talu cyflog ‘teg’ yn annog prentisiaid i aros yn eich swydd chi. Fe wnaiff Llywodraeth Cymru gyllido’r hyfforddiant. Gellir cael rhagor o wybodaeth ar Reoliadau Isafswm Cyflog yma:

Question:

What is Flexible Learning?

(Last edited: Thursday, 26 June 2014, 8:13 AM)
Answer:

Flexible learning is skills training at levels 2, 3, 4 and 5.  It offers the opportunity for employees to undertake single qualifications to which the Welsh Government will make a funding contribution of up to a maximum of 50% of its normal funding rates applicable at the time.  The option is available for those employees aged 19 and over.

There is a restriction to the number of Apprentices who can be on this programme Flexible learning. 

Dysgu hyblyg yw hyfforddiant sgiliau ar lefelau 2, 3, 4 a 5. Mae’n rhoi’r cyfle i gyflogeion gymryd cymwysterau sengl ac y bydd Llywodraeth Cymru yn gwneud cyfraniad ariannol iddynt hyd at 50% ar y mwyaf o’i chyfraddau cyllido arferol ar y pryd. Mae’r opsiwn ar gael ar gyfer y cyflogeion hynny sy’n 19 oed neu’n hŷn.

Mae cyfyngiad ar nifer y Prentisiais sy’n gallu bod ar y rhaglen Dysgu Hyblyg hon.
