Financial Support for Apprentices

Incentive Payments for Employers 

You can claim incentive payments for hiring a new apprentice. Employers who hire new apprentices between 1 August 2020 and 31 January 2021 could get:

  • £2,000 for apprentices aged 16 to 24
  • £1,500 for apprentices aged 25 and over

You can apply from 1 September 2020 and spend the payment on anything you need to support your organisation. This is in addition to the £1,000 payment you receive for taking on an apprentice who is 16-18 years old.


Hire experienced, work-ready apprentices now 

When taking on apprentices, we are encouraging employers to consider hiring apprentices who have been made redundant during the pandemic. These apprentices already have valuable skills and experience, so will make an impact straight away – and they qualify for the incentive payments for hiring a new apprentice too.
