National Apprenticeship Week

New changes to Apprenticeship grant for employers.

There have been some new changes to the Apprenticeship Grant for Employers from the 1st January 2015.

Apprenticeship Grant for Employers of 16 to 24 year olds (AGE 16 to 24)
AGE 16 to 24 has already helped thousands of employers to grow their business by employing an apprentice. AGE 16 to 24 is available until 31 December 2015, subject to eligibility and availability. Could it help you too?

The AGE 16 to 24 Grant for Employers aims to support businesses, who would not otherwise be in a position to do so, to recruit individuals aged 16 to 24 into employment though the Apprenticeship programme.

The National Apprenticeship Service will provide AGE 16 to 24 to eligible employers, in respect of qualifying apprentices, with an individual value of £1,500. Employers can be paid five grants in total during the lifetime of the initiative.

AGE 16 to 24 targets employers with less than 50 employees, who are new to Apprenticeships or haven't enrolled a new recruit or existing employee onto an Apprenticeship programme in the previous 12 months.
