The financial incentive helps you cover the wage and recruitment costs of taking on an apprentice who has been made redundant from another employer. It should be used to support an apprentice with employment for a minimum of 12 months.
For businesses in the oil and gas industry, the financial incentive is £5,000. This is for Modern Apprenticeships only. For businesses in all other industries the incentive is £2,000.
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.
