Team Lopez: As announced by the Chancellor in the March Budget, as of the 1st June businesses can now apply to claim £3000 for each new apprentice, of any age, hired as a new employee from 1 April to 30 September.
Alongside this funding, the government is also investing £126m to help create 40,000 more traineeships in England for 16-24 year olds in 2021-22. Traineeships last between 6 weeks to 12 months and provide young people with valuable training and work placements that help boost their employability as well as improving talent pipelines for participating businesses.
Employers offering traineeships may apply for a £1000 grant to help them deliver traineeships for up to 10 learners per region, in each of the 9 regions of England.
