The Government have announced that we will incentivise small employers who have not been previously engaged in the apprenticeships programme to take on their first young apprentices aged 16 to 24. Up to 40,000 places will be available.
Apprenticeships deliver strong value for money, with good progression in employment and continued learning. Small employers, who often do not have human resource departments, or dedicated training budgets, can find it more challenging to take on their first apprentice. Providing an incentive payment to support them in doing so will enable them to offer new opportunities to young people.
