Available Grants

As a result of Covid-19 the Government are offering the below grants:

In recognition of the value apprentices can bring to our economy, the government have announced details of an incentive payment available to all employers who hire an apprentice.

  • The incentive is available until September 2021
  • There will be two levels of payment based on age.
  • For apprentices aged 16-24 the payment will be £2,000.
  • For apprentices aged 25 or over the payment will be £1,500.
  • For apprentices aged between 16-18 the employer will still receive an additional £1000.
  • The payment will be made directly to employers in two equal instalments, where the apprentice is still in learning at day 90 and day 365.
  • There will be no limit on the number of incentive payments that an employer can claim for apprentices eligible to receive funding, provided each apprentice meets the criteria, including being a new employee.
  • To access the incentive employers must register access to the Apprenticeship Service, instructions can be found HERE
