BUDGET 2021: Rishi Sunak Doubles Incentives for Apprenticeships
Rishi Sunak has put apprenticeships to the forefront of his recovery plans by doubling the incentive payments handed to employers. This is a welcome extension to the previous incentive scheme for all UK employers.
Under the new plans, the government will pay an employer who hires a new apprentice between 1 April 2021 until 31 September £3,000.
This apprenticeship bonus is an increase on the previous scheme’s terms of £1,500 per new hire or £2,000 for those aged 24 and under. Unlike the previous scheme, today’s announcement is applicable for apprentices of all ages.
These payments are on top of the existing £1,000 that employers get for all new 16-18-year-old apprentices and those aged under 25 with an Education, Health and Care Plan.
