Great news for CITB-registered employers who could see up to a 30% increase in grants they can claim for employing an apprentice, with as much as £14,500 being available for an apprentice who completes both Level 2 and Level 3 apprenticeship across a 3 year period.

The new grant rates came into force on the 1st April and apply to apprentices who started after this date. For more information on the grants system and how to claim, please see here.

We very much welcome this news, as it further incentivises the recruitment and training of apprentices who are greatly needed within our industry.
