Guide to Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships can provide a productive and effective way to grow talent, develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce and drive business success.

Apprenticeships themselves are going through their biggest overhaul in a generation. No longer just for young people, they help staff of all ages and levels progress in work. They can include degrees or chartered status and provide a valuable pathway to develop the right staff, your way – no matter what sector your business is operating in.


You could be eligible to get up to £3,000 for each new apprentice you hire, with new incentive payments for employers. This includes hiring redundant apprentices.

The incentive payment is in addition to the £1,000 employers already receive for hiring an apprentice:

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