Funding and Grants
Apprenticeship Funding Grant for Employers (AGE) of 16 to 24 year-olds
AGE 16-24 is a funding grant aimed at supporting businesses to grow by employing young people through an Apprenticeship programme. For each apprentice employed, employers can claim a funding grant of £1500, up to a total of £15,000. This is in addition to the training costs of the Apprenticeship framework which are met in full for young people aged 16 to 18 and 50% for those aged 19 to 24. Eligible employers are those with up to 1000 employees that have never employed an apprentice before or who have not recruited one in the last 12 months.
Employers who fall within the Creative Employment footprint can apply for additional grants by pledging an Expression of Interest with us.
