Incentive payments for hiring a new apprentice

The Government have increased incentive payments for hiring a new apprentice.

Employers will receive £3,000 for new employees of any age who start their apprenticeship from 1 April 2021 to 30 September 2021.

The payment is different to apprenticeship levy funds, so you can spend it on anything to support your organisation’s costs. For example: on uniforms, your apprentice’s travel or their salary. You do not have to pay it back.
