Apprenticeship Grant for Employers
There’s now extra help for businesses who would like to recruit an apprentice but are unable to fund it. The Apprenticeship Grant for Employers supports businesses offering 16 to 24 year olds employment through apprenticeships, if they have not done so in the last 12 months. Eligible businesses with fewer than 50 employees can claim a grant of £1,500 for each apprentice (up to a maximum of five grants).
