Apprenticeship grants are increasing from 1 April 2019 

Today we are announcing an increase to apprenticeship grants from 1 April 2019, and will be emailing the below, to levy-registered employers.
Please help us to raise awareness of this by forwarding this email to your levy-registered employer members and networks.

We’re making funding more generous and easier to understand

You told us you want grants that are simple to understand and provide you with support throughout the apprenticeship programme. We listened. This means from 1 April:

£2,500 attendance grant per year for every new eligible apprentice

£3,500 achievement grant for every eligible apprentice.

Previously, a typical 2 year Apprenticeship package would have attracted grants of £6,000 and a typical 3 year Apprenticeship package would have attracted £10,250.

Yours faithfully
