Between 1st August 2020 and 31st January 2021 the government will pay £2,000 to employers in England for each apprentice under the age of 25 that they hire, and £1,500 for apprentices aged over 25.
This is in addition to the £1,000 the government already provides for 16-18 year-olds.
There will be no limit on the number of incentive payments that an employer can claim for apprentices eligible to receive funding, provided each apprentice meets the criteria, including being a new employee.
