Payments for employers who hire new apprentices



Building on the action taken in the face of the immediate threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the government is now proceeding with the second phase of its response with a targeted Plan for Jobs.

Main News Story

The government will introduce a new payment of £2,000 to employers in England for each new apprentice they hire aged under 25, and a £1,500 payment for each new apprentice they hire aged 25 and over, from 1st August 2020 to 31st January 2021. These payments will be in addition to the existing £1,000 payment the government already provides for new 16-18 year-old apprentices, and those aged under 25 with an Education, Health and Care Plan – where that applies.
