06 Nov 2012 Apprenticeship Grant for Employers

The Apprenticeship Grant for Employers of 16 to 24 year olds (AGE16 to 24) aims to support businesses to grow by providing incentives to assist in offering young people employment through the Apprenticeship programme.

The grant targets employers who are new to Apprenticeships and recruiting their first apprentice, and also supports employers who have not been in a position within the previous twelve months to commit to employing an apprentice again.

The National Apprenticeship Service will provide up to 40,000 Apprenticeship grants to employers with up to 1000 employees recruiting 16 to 24 year olds with a value of £1,500 to encourage employers to take on new apprentices.

The £1,500 is in addition to the training costs of the Apprenticeship framework which are met in full for young people aged 16 to 18 and 50% for those aged 19 to 24.

Please call Track Training for further details on 0845 1306461 or see the separate attachment.
