From 1 October 2013, the national minimum wage rates are as follows:
|Year||21 and over||18 to 20||Under 18||Apprentice*|
|2013 (current rate)||£6.31||£5.03||£3.72||£2.68|
*This rate is for apprentices under 19 or those in their first year. If you’re 19 or over and past your first year you get the rate that applies to your age.
The age groups were different before 2010. There were no National Minimum Wage rates for apprentices..
