Apprenticeship schemes – the latest funding changes
Details on apprenticeship funding in England, Wales and Scotland.
In England, the government will continue to meet 95% of the apprenticeship training cost for employers who do not pay the Apprenticeship Levy. Additionally, the £3,000 apprenticeship hiring incentive payment (per new hire) has been extended until 31 January 2022.
In Wales, apprenticeships are funded by the Welsh government, and apprenticeship incentive payments ranging from £1,500 - £4000 are available until 28 February 2022 (subject to budget availability, some exceptions apply). For further detail, please visit the Business Wales website.
In Scotland, the type of funding you can access will depend on the type of apprenticeship. Additionally, the Adopt an Apprentice scheme provides employers with £5,000 for employing a redundant apprentice.
