Apprenticeship Incentive of £3000 extended
The extension of the Government’s apprenticeship hiring incentives announced by Rishi Sunak at the 2021 Conservative Party Conference has been transformational for young people and employers alike.
Alongside a much-needed cash boost for businesses, the scheme encouraged employers to grow their own talent, creating some fantastic opportunities for young people to start a rewarding career, or to retrain for emerging business opportunities.
Employers who took on a new joiner of any age up until 31st January 2022, can still receive a Government incentive payment of £3,000 provided they are enrolled on an Apprenticeship programme before the 31st March 2022. Those hiring apprentices aged 16-18 can also claim an additional £1000 payment under a pre-existing scheme. These employer incentive grants can be claimed through the government’s digital apprenticeship service.
