Funding and incentives
If you are a small to medium sized employer and have not employed an apprentice in the last 12 months, or have employed an apprentice but has since offered them a permanent position, you may be eligible for an apprenticeship wage grant of up to £2000 (supported by Leeds Enterprise Partnership). This wage grant is available until the end of December 2016 on a first come first serve basis.
100% of the training costs are funded by the government if the apprentice is aged 16 to 18 years old and around 50% of the training cost is funded for those aged between 19 and 23 years old.
