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 and we will re-open the 2nd January 2020.

We see you having a great Christmas and a Happy New Year
