INVEST IN YOUR WORKFORCE. HIRE AN APPRENTICE TODAY
Taking on an apprentice is a great way to expand your workforce and fill business gaps whilst receiving funding from the government to help support your organisational costs.
Last year, the government announced the Plan for Jobs which was aimed at kickstarting the nation’s economic recovery. As part of this, an incentive payment was announced for apprenticeships due to the benefit they bring to businesses and the wider economy. This incentive, due to end on 31 March 2021 has been extended to 30 September 2021 with an increase of £3000 for each eligible apprentice.
The new funding means:
- £4,000 if your apprentice is aged 16 -18 yrs on the day of their enrolment (£3,000 of additional money in addition to the £1,000 already in place).
- £3,000 for all new apprentices aged 19+
- There isn’t a limit on the number of apprentices you take on or the number of incentives you receive
