Government increase incentive payments for hiring a new apprentice
Employers will now receive £3,000 for new apprentices of any age who join their organization from 1st April 2021 to 30 September 2021. #PlanForJobs
Between August 2020 and March 201 the financial incentives, introduced by Rishi Sunak in August, offered organizations £2,000 to take on apprentices aged 16 to 24, while those that employ new apprentices aged 25 and over are paid £1,500.
“For the next six months we’ll pay businesses to hire young apprentices, with a payment of £2,000. We’re also introducing a brand-new bonus to hire apprentices aged 25 and over, with a payment of £1,500. #PlanForJobs“Rishi Sunak, Chancellor, HM Government , August 2020
It is extremely encouraging to see the commitment UK Government is making to a speedy recovery for UK Plc and the support being offered around Apprenticeships in particular.
