£1,000 grant to any employer taking on younger apprentices

The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) will provide businesses with a £1,000 grant to any employer taking on an apprentice aged 16-18 (or aged 19-24 with an Education Health and Care plan or who is a care-leaver). Payments are made via the training provider (University of Brighton) and passed on to the employer in two payments of £500, the first after month three, and the second after month 12.

Employers of apprentices under the age of 25 do not pay secondary Class 1 (employer) National Insurance contributions for their apprentice.
