Information for businesses on apprenticeships.
An apprenticeship is a way for young people and adult learners to earn while they learn in a real job, gaining a real qualification and a real future.
Hiring apprentices helps businesses to grow their own talent by developing a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.
Funding for apprenticeships
Depending on the age of the apprentice, government funding can cover up to 100 per cent of the training costs.
Businesses may be able to claim a £1,500 grant if they recruit a 16 to 24-year-old apprentice.
Other grants are available - see the National Apprenticeship Service website for more information.
