If you are a business that is considering taking on a new apprentice(s) as a way to grow your workforce and support economic recovery following the coronavirus pandemic, you may have heard that the government is supporting business by way of a series of financial incentives announced on 8 July 2020 in the Summer Statement.
These incentives form the backbone to the Plan for Jobs 2020, however you may not know that to be eligible for these apprenticeship incentives all apprenticeship starts must be generated using the Apprenticeship Service. An online platform where you can reserve and manage funding, source training providers and advertise your vacancies. You can create an account following the gov.uk guidance.
