08 Feb Financial Incentives for Employers to Recruit an Apprentice

Did you know that employers who hire a new apprentice between 1 August 2020 and 31 March 2021 can claim financial incentives from the government?

This is to help businesses and the economy recover from the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

For apprentices aged:

  • 16 to 24, you’ll receive £2,000;
  • 25 and over, you’ll receive £1,500;


This payment is in addition to the existing £1,000 you’ll already get for taking on an apprentice who is:

  • aged 16 to 18 years old;
  • under 25 and has an education, health and care plan or has been in the care of their local authority.
