Government cash incentives for employees for training their employees

Thursday, 25 Feb 2021

Employers who hire a new apprentice between 1 August 2020 and 31 March 2021 can claim financial incentives from the government.

This is to help businesses and the economy recover from the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

You receive £2,000 for apprentices aged 16-24

You receive £1,500 for apprentices aged 25 and over

You also receive a further £1,000 for an apprentice aged 16-18.

This means that an apprentice who starts training before age 19 totals a £3,000 cash incentive.
