Have you hired a new apprentice between 1 October 2021 and 31 January 2022?
If these apprentices have an apprenticeship start date between 1 October 2021 and 31 March 2022, employers can still be eligible for the £3,000 incentive payment for hiring a new apprentice.
Applications for the incentive payment close on 15 May 2022.
How employers apply..
Employers should check their apprentices’ eligibility – they must have:
- an employment start date from 1 October 2021 to 31 January 2022
- an apprenticeship start date from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022
To receive the payment, employers must submit an application for each eligible apprentice using their apprenticeship service account.
