Extension of the apprenticeship incentive
By DTA | 10th March 2021 | News
The Chancellor, the Rt Hon Rishi Sunak MP, has made technical education a pivotal feature of the Budget after declaring that "protecting, creating, and supporting jobs is my highest priority."
Extension of the apprenticeship incentive from 1 April to 30 September 2021 and an increase in the payment to £3,000 regardless of the age of the apprentice. (This is in addition to the existing £1,000 payment the government provides for all new 16-18 year-old apprentices and those aged under 25 with an Education, Health and Care Plan, where that applies.)
