Have you considered hiring an apprentice who’s been made redundant?

Employers who take on an apprentice before 31 March 2021 qualify for a government incentive payment:

  • £2,000 for apprentices aged 16 to 24
  • £1,500 for apprentices aged 25 and over
Here’s why it makes sense…
  • Hire an apprentice with relevant experience, so you’ll notice a quick return on investment
  • Give an enthusiastic apprentice who has lost their job a new start
  • Fill key skill gaps in your organisation
Next Steps

Further information can be found on the Government support website.

Incentive payments
  • You can apply for the payment until 30 April 2021
  • Payments are made in 2 equal instalments for each apprentice. The first payment is after an apprentice completes 90 days of their apprenticeship and the second is after 365 days.
  • To receive the full payment, the apprenticeship must last for at least one year.
