Up to £3500 available for Apprenticeship Recruitment

The Apprenticeship Employer Incentive Programme will provide support for SMEs to recruit apprentices aged 16-19, help provide individuals and employers with the skills needed over the long-term and prevent skills shortages.

The incentive will be available to SMEs who are new to apprenticeships or have not recruited an apprentice in the last 30 months. Support will be offered to a maximum of three apprentices per employer and will be available irrespective of the level of the apprenticeship. The Apprenticeship Employer Incentive Programme offers a payment up to £3,500 (per learner) for apprentices recruited during the periods of July - September 2018 or January - March 2019 and a payment of £2,500 (per learner) for apprentices recruited at all other times of the year. The full payment will be made after the apprentice has been employed for 8 months.
