Incentive Payments for Hiring a New Apprentice

Incentive Payments for Hiring a New Apprentice

This support is available for any organisation, so if you are an employer, don´t miss out this great opportunity!

Incentive payments for hiring a new apprentice are available for any organisation, no matter the size or the sector. The important thing is that you hire an apprentice who:

  • is new to your organisation
  • starts their contract of employment and their apprenticeship between 1 August 2020 and 31 January 2021

See the employer guidance here

Get up to £2,000 for each new apprentice

For apprentices aged:

  • 16 to 24, employers will receive £2,000
  • 25 and over, employers will receive £1,500

Employers can spend the payment on anything to support their organisation’s costs, from facilities and travel to uniforms and salaries. This is in addition to the £1,000 payment to help employers meet the needs of some groups of apprentices in the workplace.

During the Christmas holidays, LLC offices will be closed from the 18th December 2020 and we will re-open the 4th January 2021.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
