PTS apprenticeship funding

As announced during the recent Budget, the Government are to provide greater incentives for the recruitment of new apprentices. Employers are entitled to £3000 for each apprentice taken on between 1st April and 30th September 2021.

This is on top of the £1000 incentive for recruiting an apprentice who is between the age of 16-18 years of age and an individual under 25 who has an Education, Health & Care Plan. This means an employer could potentially receive £4000 per apprenticeship.
