Average regulated remuneration: EUR 50 per month, EUR 600 per year
A monthly minimum salary of apprentice is somewhere between EUR 40 and EUR 60, depending on the year of training. The minimum amounts (not less than 4% of the average monthly salary of worker in the first year, 5% in the 2nd year and 6% in the 3rd year) are defined by law (Dz.U. 2014 nr 0 poz. 232). Employers can offer higher salaries, however, based on the information available such situations happen rarely. Thus, although the data on real/actual salaries of apprentices is not sufficiently available, it may be assumed that on average, the actual wages correspond to the regulated amounts.
