From 1st August 2017 the Welsh Government’s Apprenticeship Employer Incentive Programme is available to support SME’s to recruit apprentices aged 16-19.  This will help provide individuals and employers with the skills needed and help to prevent skills shortages.

To access the programme you must  be an SME who is new to apprenticeships or have not recruited an apprentice in the last 30 months

In return you will receive a  payment of £3,500 (per learner) for apprentices recruited during the period of July-September and a payment of £2,500 (per learner) for apprentices recruited at all other times of the year. Full payment of the incentive will be made after the apprentice has been employed for 8 months. You can recruit up to a maximum of three apprentices through the Incentive Programme.
