Great news, the Government has increased incentive payments for hiring a new apprentice!

Employers will now receive £3,000 for new employees of any age who start their apprenticeship from 1 April 2021 to 30 September 2021.

The incentive payment is in addition to the £1,000 employers already receive for hiring an apprentice:

  • Aged 16 to 18 years old
  • Under 25 with an education, health and care plan or who has been in the care of their local authority

The 2021 intake of engineering apprentices at our Coventry and Redditch Technical Centres takes place on 6 September. We are currently interviewing and testing applicants to enable us to match candidates of the highest calibre with our employer partner opportunities.

If you are considering hiring an apprentice then why not get in touch to arrange a COVID-19 secure tour of our facilities.

MGTS is here to offer expert guidance and support on all aspects of an engineering apprenticeship.
