You can now gain an extra £3000 when hiring an apprentice


But you only have until the end of September 2021.


Introduced as part of the government’s Plan for Jobs, these incentive payments are to support both employers and individuals following the Covid-19 pandemic.


Having trained over 300 apprentices in PE and sport since 2012, we’ve seen first-hand the valuable impact of apprenticeships.


Apprenticeships in the PE and sport sector [link ] give businesses a cost-effective way to build a skilled workforce, schools the opportunity to enhance their physical curriculum, individuals a high-quality career starter and children access to first-rate physical activity that educates and inspires.


With an extra £3000 for hiring an apprentice, £1500 of added value training offered by us for FREE, plus our relationships with levy sharing partners meaning all training costs could be covered, there is no better time to hire an apprentice


Who can access the £3000 employer incentive payments?

Employers with a workforce in England can apply and the following criteria needs to be met:

The apprentice must be a new employee to the business The apprentice must have joined the organisation between 1st April 2021 and 30th September 2021 The apprentice must not have been employed by the business within the six months prior to the contract start date


When will you get paid?

You’ll receive the payment in two equal instalments:

  • First payment: sent after the apprentice completes 90 days
  • Second payment: sent after 365 days


How can you use the payment?

It’s up to you how to spend the £3000. It could be on uniforms, travel, your apprentice’s salary (that’s 44%* covered right there) or anything that supports your organisation’s costs.
