Apprenticeship Grant for Employers of 16-24-year-olds
The government AGE 16 to 24 grant has already helped thousands of employers to grow their business by employing an apprentice. Subject to eligibility and availability.
The AGE 16 to 24 Grant for Employers aims to support businesses, who would not otherwise be in a position to do so, to recruit individuals ages 16 to 24 into employment through the apprenticeship programme.
The National Apprenticeship Service will provide AGE 16 to 24 to eligible employers in respect of qualifying apprentices, with an individual value of £1,500. Employers can be paid five grants in total during the lifetime of the initiative.
AGE 16 to 24 targets employers with less than 50 employees, who are new to apprenticeships and haven’t enrolled a new recruit or existing employee onto an apprenticeship programme in the previous 12 months.
