Employers with fewer than 50 people working for them will be able to train 16-18-year-old apprentices without making a contribution towards the costs of training. The government will pay 100% of the training costs for these individuals.
Employers that recruit a 19-24 year old who has previously been in care or who has a local authority education, health and care plan, the government will also pay 100% of the training costs for these individuals.
For all others, the employer will be required to pay a 10% contribution.
To find out the framework or standard contribution relating to the job role of your apprentice(s), please contact a Business Advisor in the Job Shop by calling 0161 785 4330.
