Surge in Apprenticeships To Beat 31 March Deadline for Incentive Payments

26th February 2021

We are seeing a huge surge in apprenticeship enrolments as organisations of all types seek to take advantage of the government incentive payments for any staff member that has started their employment since 1 August 2020. 

Has you employed anyone since 1st August 2020 and would you like to claim up to £3,000 in incentive payments whilst upskilling your staff?

If the answer is yes, then you are eligible to receive for the following payments from the government if you put them onto one of our funded training programmes.

• New hires aged 16 to 24 – receive £2,000 (and you won’t have to pay NI contributions for this employee).
• New hires aged 25 and over – receive £1,500

Get the payment in 3 simple steps:

  1. Register your staff member(s) onto a fully-funded apprenticeship training programme that suits their development needs and matches their job role. Our full course listing is here.
  2. Apply for the payment after you’ve added new apprentices to your digital apprenticeship service account. We can show you exactly how to do this.
  3. You will then be eligible for 2 equal instalments after the apprentice completes 90 and 365 days of their apprenticeship.
