The Government has recently announced new financial Incentives for Employers in England. There will now be additional paymentsfor each new apprentice you hire:

  • £2000 payment for each new apprentice aged under 25
  • £1,500 payment for each new apprentice aged 25 and over

These payments are on top of the existing £1,000 for new 16-18-year-old apprentices. This is a limited offer only available from 1st August 2020 to 31st March 2021.

The payment is different to apprenticeship levy funds, meaning you can spend it on anything to support your organisation’s costs. For example, it could be spent on uniforms, your apprentice’s travel or their salary. You do not have to pay it back. Learn more here.

If your business is looking to hire an apprentice under this scheme, contact us today.
