Your company benefits from a young person who will be trained on the job while employed at your place of work and has the experience of a formal college education one day a week (which includes studying English and Maths).
The Apprenticeship Grant for Employers (AGE) is aimed at recruiting 16 to 24 year olds on apprenticeships which will last for at least one year.Subject to meeting certain government criteria you would be paid in two instalments of 50% of the grant. You could employ up to three apprentices and be eligible for three grants.
