Additional payments for apprenticeships

EmployerThis article sits within the Employer section

Employers and training providers will both receive a payment of £1,000 if they take on an apprentice who, at the start of the apprenticeship, is:

  • aged 16 to 18 (or 15 years of age if their 16th birthday is between the last Friday of June & 31 August.)
  • aged 19 to 24 with an education, health and care plan provided by their local authority
  • aged 19 to 24 and have been in the care of their local authority

You can use the payment to help support your organisation with the additional cost associated with apprenticeship training.

When you’ll get the payment

We make all payments to the training provider. The training provider will then give the employer their part of the payment within 30 working days of receipt. 

We make payments in 2 equal instalments, after the apprentice completes 90 and 365 days of their apprenticeship.
