There has never been a better time to recruit an apprentice. For every new apprentice you hire between 1st August 2020 and 31st January 2021, you will receive up to £3,000 as part of the Government’s plan to support employers during economic recovery.
Depending on the age of the apprentice you recruit, you could receive:
- £3,000 for an apprentice aged 16-18 years old
- £2,000 for an apprentice aged 19-24 years old
