The government aim to double the investment in Apprenticeships between 2017 and 2020 to £2.5bn and are committed to 3 million quality apprenticeship starts in England over this parliament.
To support this, changes have been made to the apprenticeship funding system:
When any employer takes on a 16 to 18 year old apprentice they will receive £1,000 to help meet the extra costs. This will be paid to employers in two equal instalments at 3 months and 12 months. These payments come direct from the government and will not be deducted from an employer’s digital account.
There are additional incentives if you are based in Hertfordshire, contact iSales for more information about eligibility, grants and funding: firstname.lastname@example.org
