During the pandemic, the Chancellor has provided financial incentives to encourage businesses that take on apprentices.
16-18 year olds – £3,000
19-24 year olds – £2,000
25+ – £1,500
Apprenticeships also allow for a more economical payroll solution for growing companies and there is currently no age limit for an apprentice.
Companies with an annual wage bill over £3m can access apprenticeship training via their Apprenticeship Levy. SMEs are required to co-fund apprenticeship training by paying 5% of the overall cost of the apprenticeship, with Government paying the remaining 95% of the cost.
Over the last 8 years, we have successfully completed 603 Apprenticeship Frameworks with our staff with a 100% timely completion rate (against the SFA benchmark of 53%).
