Major new employer incentives announced to help recruit apprentices

Apprenticeships continue to play a vital role in delivering the skills employers and the economy need, offering the opportunity to recruit cost effectively and build a skilled workforce.

Any employer in Wales, regardless of size or sector, can benefit from the apprenticeship recruitment incentives:

  • up to a £3,000 incentive for employing a new apprentice
  • up to a £2,600 incentive for re-employing a redundant apprentice
  • a £1,500 incentive for employing a disabled apprentice, which can be claimed in addition to the new and redundant apprentice incentives
