The Adopt an Apprentice scheme allows businesses to benefit from a skilled trainee, whilst also receiving a financial incentive. This can help cover 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 Modern Apprentice a one-off financial incentive of £2,000 is available.
Employers from the oil and gas industry will receive a one-off financial incentive payment of £5,000.
