Funding opportunities for your business
The government will pay £2,000 to all employers in England for each new apprentice they hire aged between 16-24, and £1,500 for each new apprentice they hire aged 25 and over before 31 March 2021.
If your company has less than 50 employees and you take on a 16-18 year old, you are entitled to receive the training completely free of charge.
If you are not a levy payer, (your wage bill is less than £3 million) you will contribute just 5% of the total cost of your apprenticeship training, the Government will pay the remaining 95%. Additionally, you will receive £1,000 for each 16-18 year old apprentice that you take on, plus the incentive payments from the government. That’s a total of up to £3,000 per apprentice hired paid directly to your business.
If you pay the apprenticeship levy, as well as receiving the incentive payments from the government, we can support you to maximise your levy strategy and make the most of funding on offer. You can use your levy funds to bring in new talent to the business, or upskill existing employees and help reduce skills gaps.
