Exciting news for employers considering hiring an apprentice in 2021 – As part of the Government’s Plan for Jobs, the 2021 March budget announced a new apprenticeship cash incentive for companies hiring new apprentices.
Up to £4,000 is now available for new apprentices hired between 1st April and 30th Sept 2021:
These new government incentives were designed to stimulate the existing success of apprenticeships and help in rebuilding the economy after the coronavirus outbreak, with Sunak quoted saying “We know apprenticeships work. Ninety-one percent stay in work or go on to further training.”
There has never been a better time for an organisation to hire an apprentice! So, who can claim and how does it work?
Further details can be found on the Government website.
