What funding is available from the government?
Employers can claim a £1,000 payment for all new 16-18 year-old apprentices (and those aged under 25 with an Education, Health and Care Plan, where that applies).
Training young apprentices
There is no doubt that taking on an apprentice will be different to recruiting someone who has some experience in the role you are recruiting for. You must remember that the training is a partnership with the training provider and you the employer. The reality is the more training and support you are able to provide the apprentice the more successful the apprentice will be and in turn add real value to your business. This is also a great opportunity for your current skilled team to coach and mentor someone.
Due to the current pandemic the government has made new incentives available to employers looking to employ an apprentice.
