Apprenticeships A Guide for Employers

Employers just like you are benefiting right now

Rewards’ AppJobs service has been helping employers find the young apprentices they need to help run and improve their businesses.

Chart Lane is just one of many organisations Rewards Training have helped recruit Apprentices for over the past year.

“I have recruited two apprentices through Rewards, and have found them to be excellent throughout. The best bit is the continuing attention through the full year of the apprenticeship – high quality trainers working to get the apprentice trained up to be what I need.”

Ross Sturley

Thinking of hiring an Apprentice? – A £1500 grant could help

The Apprenticeship Grant for Employers of 16 to 24 year olds (“AGE 16 to 24”) is currently available for small businesses (less than 50 staff in the UK).

AGE 16 to 24 has already helped thousands of employers to grow their business by employing Apprentices and now employers have more time to claim up to five Apprenticeship grants. AGE 16 to 24 is aimed at supporting businesses to grow by employing young people through the Apprenticeship programme.

The National Apprenticeship Service will provide Apprenticeship grants of £1,500 per apprentice to employers who have up to 1,000 employees and are recruiting 16 to 24 year olds, to encourage employers to develop their business and take on new apprentices.

The £1,500 is in addition to the training costs of the Apprenticeship framework which are met in full for young people aged 16-18 and 50% for those aged 19-24.

Eligible employers are those who have not accessed Apprenticeship funding in the last 12 months without a grant application. (either for a newly recruited Apprentice or for existing staff training). Subject to budget availability and the employer’s commitment to support the Apprentice to the end of their programme, up to 5 grants can be made to any one employer.
