The Apprenticeship Grant for Employers of 16- to 24- year-olds (AGE 16 to 24) supports businesses that would not otherwise be in a position to do so, to recruit individuals aged 16 to 24 into employment through the apprenticeship programme. Eligible companies could receive up to 5 grants, each worth £1,500 and is available for apprenticeship starts up to and including 31 July 2017.
The Grant has already helped thousands of employers grown their businesses through recruiting apprentices, and you could be eligible if:
- Have fewer than 50 employees in the UK
- You have not employed an apprentice in the last 12 months
- The apprentice is between 16-24 years old
