Apprenticeship Payment Guidance – Hiring a New Apprentice

23rd April, 2021

Employers will receive an increased incentive payment of £3,000 for new apprentices of any age who start their employment between 1 April and 30 September 2021.

You can apply for incentive payments for these apprentices from 1 June 2021 via your apprenticeship service account.

You can spend the payment on anything to support your organisation’s costs and you do not have to pay it back.
