Perks and Discounts

Whilst we don’t recommend undertaking an apprenticeship just for the perks, for many people they are well worth having!


Apprentices are entitled to TOTUM Apprentice membership which gives you access to over 400 discounts, deals and offers on big-name brands both online and in store, giving you big savings on eating out, tech, fashion, travel and more!

To find out more, visit https://app.totum.com/register/join.

Council tax

May be reduced by 25% or even 50% for households which include an apprentice who earns less than £195/week.

Further details appear on www.gov.uk/council-tax/who-has-to-pay.

London Transport

If you live in a London Borough, are in the first 12 months of your apprenticeship and are aged over 18, you are entitled to an Apprentice Oyster Photo card which will give you a 30% discount on adult rate travel cards and bus and tram pass season tickets.

You may also be eligible for a 34% discount on pay as you go off-peak fares and daily caps by adding a 16-25 Railcard to your Apprentice Oyster photocard to travel on the Tube, London Overground, TfL Rail and most National Rail services in London.

To apply you need to know your Unique Learner Number and the UK Provider Reference Number (UKPRN) which is 10006710.

Further information is on TfL’s website: https://tfl.gov.uk/fares/free-and-discounted-travel/apprentice-oyster-photocard
