Government Announce Employer Support - Take advantage of the range of measures available to support your business.
On 8 July, the government announced a range of measures to support businesses and young people, to enable the country’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and help secure the UK’s long term prosperity.
This includes £1,000 traineeship work experience and £3,000 for hiring a 16-18 year old apprentice
This is great news for local businesses and here is a quick overview of what Avant Skills Academy can support you with.
Avant Skills Academy has run a successful traineeship programme with local employers since 2016, with 95% of trainees that completed the programme progressing into an apprenticeship and employment. As part of these new measures, the government will fund employers who provide our learners with work experience at a rate of £1,000 for each learner. This is a great opportunity for you to work trial a potential new apprentice before you employ them, or raise your profile in the area by giving a young person valuable work experience, which will be publicised by Avant in our marketing materials and on our social media channels.
The government have also introduced additional payments to employers who hire new apprentices. The government already pay £1,000 to any employer who takes on a 16-18 year-old apprentice. From 1 August 2020 through to 31 January 2021, an additional payment of £2,000 will be paid to employers for each new apprentice they hire aged under 25, with a £1,500 payment for each new apprentice they hire aged 25 and over.
Therefore, if you provide a 16-18 year old learner with work experience through our traineeship programme, then progress them to an apprenticeship within your organisation, you will receive £4,000 from the government.
