Data on apprenticeship pay is published in the Apprenticeship Pay Survey 2016 which provides an average (median) hourly rate of pay for women and men undertaking Level 2 and 3 apprenticeships in England. This information was provided in our previous written response of 27 February 2018: http://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-question/Commons/2018-02-23/129432/.
The Survey provides the average (median) basic hourly pay for Level 2 and Level 3 apprentices in England in 2014 and 2016 by type of apprenticeship undertaken by those surveyed. This information can be found on page 6, Table 1.2 of the Apprenticeship Pay Survey 2016 (England): https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/630082/apprenticeship-pay-survey-2016-report-england.pdf.
The Survey does not provide a further breakdown by gender.
