The Apprenticeship Employer Incentives offer financial support to recruit individual/s into employment. Different incentives will apply depending on the learner’s age and contracted hours of employment.There are also incentives to recruit disabled learners and apprentices who have been made redundant.
The support is available for employees who have a contract of employment start date with the employer and an apprenticeship agreement between 01 August 2020 and 28 February 2021 (inclusive). Eligible employers will be able to claim payments for a maximum of 10 apprentices. If an apprentice leaves after 4 weeks have elapsed, this apprentice will still count against the maximum recruitment of 10 apprentices.

What are the benefits of recruiting an apprentice?
Apprenticeships are a tried and tested way of injecting new talent into your organisation. By recruiting an apprentice, it helps to increase productivity and help tackle skill shortages. The apprentice will be able to learn valuable skills on the job whilst completing a qualification at the same time. The vacancy can be tailored to specific job roles, creating flexibility to the needs of your business.
