Current Apprentices Discuss Why They Joined Pret’s School Leavers Programme
(Instead of, Before and After Uni)

Applications to the Pret School Leavers Programme (SLP) are now open.

Now in its sixth year, Pret hopes to recruit up to 120 participants, with various start dates scheduled over the next few months.

The aim of the year-long programme is to give young people the opportunity and support to start their careers straight away, while also gaining an apprenticeship.

Available to school leavers, gap year students and recent graduates across the UK, each successful applicant is given a full-time shop based role, with additional training, support and work skills courses.

No matter their age, participants will be paid Pret’s starting salary of £7.85 or £7.65 an hour (depending on location), with eligibility to receive an extra £1 an hour weekly Mystery Shopper bonus, after 12 weeks. They will also receive Pret’s well-regarded benefits and perks, including weekly pay, free food on shift, a 50% discount when not, paid breaks, 28 days’ holiday, and free work shoes.*
