Funding for Apprenticeships

There is currently an Apprenticeship grant worth £1,500 (known as the AGE Grant) which is available for employers looking to recruit an Apprentice. This money is made available through the National Apprenticeship Service and is payable after six months of the Apprentice starting their employment. To be eligible for this grant, employers have less than 50 employees and the apprentice must be between 16-24 years old.
