If your organisation employs less than 50 staff, the cost of training for an Apprentice aged between 16 and 18 is fully funded by the government and you will also receive £1,000 additional funding to cover any other costs.
If your Apprentice is aged 19+, 95% of the training costs will be covered by government funding and we then ask the employer to pay the remaining 5%. Apprenticeships are also available for your current employees with the same funding arrangements.
Apprentices ages 16-18 will still attract £1,000 additional funding paid to the employer to cover any other costs.
For those companies paying the Apprenticeship Levy, 100% of the training costs will be taken from their levy account and Apprentices aged 16-18 will still attract £1,000 additional funding, paid to the employer to cover any other costs.
Apprentices need to be paid the National Apprenticeship Wage and are entitled to at least 20 days paid holiday plus bank holidays.
Apprenticeships usually take from one to two years, depending on the level and industry sector.
- You will need to provide a minimum of 30 hours per week paid employment
