Traineeship Employer Incentive

Employers can now apply for a £1000 cash boost to help them take on new trainees under the Trainee Employer Incentive.

The funding – which will be available until 31st July 2021, will help businesses with the cost of providing a high-quality work placement for a trainee. This includes providing facilities, uniforms or helping with travel costs.

Businesses offering new traineeship opportunities will receive the £1,000 bonus for every trainee they take on with up to a maximum of 10 trainees. Employers can claim the cash incentive for all work placements that have been completed since 1st September.

This Government scheme is intended to support young people to gain the skills and experience they need from the very start, helping them to get a job, an apprenticeship, or pursue further study.
