Apprenticeship Grant for Employers (AGE Grant)
The Apprenticeship Grant for Employers (AGE Grant) is for those companies who employ 16-24 year olds.
You may be eligible for a grant if:
- You have fewer than 50 staff
- Your apprentice is aged 16-24
- You have not employed an apprentice in the last 12 months
The grant aims to support businesses who would not otherwise be in a position to recruit apprentices and is available for apprentices working towards approved apprenticeship frameworks.
Employers can apply for up to 5 grants in total and is available for apprenticeships starting up to the end of August 2017, subject to eligibility and availability.
