Don’t miss out – employers can receive up to £2,000
Lots of employers are already benefiting from our incentive payments for hiring an apprentice. The good news is employers still can because we’re extending incentive payments to 31 March 2021.
To receive incentive payments, employers will need to sign the latest employer agreement in their apprenticeship service account.
How it works
If employers take on apprentices as new employees between 1 August 2020 and 31 March 2021, they’ll receive:
£2,000 for apprentices aged 16 to 24
£1,500 for apprentices aged 25 and over
They can spend the payment on things like their apprentice’s uniform or salary and they don’t even have to pay it back.
Pass this on to the employers you work with to make sure they don’t miss out.
We’ll make the payment in 2 equal instalments for each apprentice. To find out when employers will get paid, check how we’ll make incentive payments.
Employers taking on apprentices as new employees should consider hiring an apprentice who’s been made redundant. They already have relevant skills and qualify for the incentive payments.
