Why not expand your workforce and make the most of the new apprenticeship incentive payments that are available for employers? The government has introduced incentive payments of £2,000 to employers for each new apprentice they recruit aged 16-24, and a £1,500 payment for each new apprentice they hire aged 25 and over, as from the 1st August 2020 to January 31st 2021.
These incentives are in addition to the existing £1,000 payment the government already provides for non-levy employers who hire new 16-18 year-old apprentices. That's a total benefit of up to £3,000 per apprentice paid directly to businesses.
The new incentives have been launched by the government to generate hundreds of thousands of new jobs for young people to support them gaining skills and gaining employment.
