The financial incentive helps you cover the wage and recruitment costs of taking on an apprentice who has been made redundant from another employer.
Take on a Modern or Graduate Apprentice on the same apprenticeship to complete their training and get £2,000 to help cover wage and recruitment costs. The incentive covers all sectors. It is £5,000 for the Oil and Gas sector only.
A training provider must make the application for you. You can search for a training provider on apprenticeships.scot or call our employer helpline on 0800 783 6000.

This financial incentive is considered to be 'controlled subsidy' (which is the interim regime under the UK/EU Trade and Co-operation Agreement agreed on 24 December 2020 (the "Brexit Agreement") that has replaced 'state aid'). Businesses can receive a maximum of 325,000 Special Drawing Rights over three fiscal years. Details of the current Special Drawing Rights exchange rate are available on the International Monetary Fund website.
