Incentive payments for hiring a new apprentice

The Government has introduced payments to support organisations that take on new apprentices between 1 August 2020 and 31 January 2021.

You can apply for the payment from 1 September 2020, after you add new apprentices to your apprenticeship service account.

The payment is in addition to the existing £1,000 you’ll already get for taking on an apprentice who is:

  • aged 16 to 18 years old
  • under 25 and has an education, health and care plan or has been in the care of their local authority
