>Find, save and manage training providers

>Recruit apprentices

>Add and manage apprentices

And Remember….. if you hire an apprentice before the 31st March 2021, you will be receive up to £3,000 (and more in other cases ie: CITB grants).

You could receive:

>£3,000 for hiring a 16-18 year old apprentice (19+ with EHCP)

>£2,000 for hiring 19-24 year old apprentice

>£1,500 for hiring a 25+ year old apprentice
