The government see the role apprenticeships can play in re-charging the economy and to support this they confirmed the following additional incentives that any employer taking on a new apprentice will receive.
- £2,000 per apprentice aged 16-24
- £1,500 per apprentice aged 25+
This relates to apprentices taken on from 1st August 2020 through to 31st January 2021. For an employer to be elibile for the incentive, they must:
- Employ an apprentice who has not been employed by the employer within the six months prior to the apprenticeship contract start date.
There is no limit to the number of incentive payments an employer can get and 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.
