Funding is available for various apprenticeships and short courses, based on the eligibility of the individual learner.
The Apprenticeship grant for employers of 16 to 24 year olds (AGE 16 to 24) aims to support businesses, who would not otherwise be in a position to do so, to recruit individuals aged 16 to 24 into employment though the apprenticeship programme.
The Skills Funding Agency could provide a grant to eligible employers, in respect of qualifying apprentices, with an individual value of £1,500.
The AGE 16 to 24 grant is for employers with less than 50 employees, who are new to apprenticeships or haven’t enrolled a new recruit or existing employee onto an Apprenticeship programme in the previous 12 months. Employers can be paid up to 5 grants in total.
The Grant has already helped thousands of employers to grow their business by employing an apprentice. The Grant is available for apprenticeship starts up to and including 31 December 2015, subject to eligibility and availability.
