Payments for employers hiring new apprentices

Currently employers can receive a payment of £1,000 for every new apprentice between 16-18 years old and those aged under 25 with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan. The new payments will be added to the existing £1,000.

 In total, employers will receive:

The additional payments will apply to those who started their apprenticeship between 1st August 2020 and 31st January 2021 and can be claimed until 30 April 2021. The employee must be new to the organisation.

The two instalments will be paid as follows:

1st (50%): upon completion of 90 days of apprenticeship

2nd (50%): after 365 days
