Adopt an Apprentice

  • Our Services

Adopt an Apprentice ensures that businesses not only benefit from a skilled trainee, but also receive a one-off financial incentive.

The financial incentive helps cover the wage and recruitment costs of taking on a Modern Apprentice who has been made redundant from another employer.

For employers willing to take on a redundant apprentice a payment of £2,000 will be awarded. Employers in the oil and gas industry will receive £5,000.
