Apprenticeship Employer Grant goes live with £15m

Tuesday, 26 January 2021

The Apprenticeship Employer Grant (AEG) was announced by the First Minister in December to help businesses take on more young people as apprentices.  AEG funding will be available for eligible employers where the apprenticeship start date was on or after 1st December 2020 and will be available for starts until 25th March 2020 or until funding levels are exceeded, whichever comes first. The grant will provide £5,000 for employers taking on or upskilling a 16 to 24-year old apprentice, and for those aged up to 29 years who are disabled, care leavers and minority ethnic.  It will provide £3,500 for employers taking on or upskilling an apprentice aged 25 plus.
