    Hiya everyone,

    Did you that there's the biggest cash support grants for apprenticeships ever plus support available for you now.

    Increased cash grants are now available for employers who take on apprentices. You’re now eligible for up to £4,000 to go towards salary, training or equipment costs. These grants are live now but you need to move fast because they end on 30 September. For Gas Engineers here in West Sussex, the HomeServe Foundation has teamed up with Steve Willis Training who have advisors ready & waiting to take you through every step of the process, from finding your apprentice, to getting them working for you.

    Now, for an apprentice of any age, you can claim a grant of £3,000 to put towards their training, their salary or any equipment you need to buy. This is up from £1,500 (or £2,000 for those aged 24 and under).

    And this is in addition to the existing £1,000 payment for all new 16-18 year-old apprentices (and those aged under 25 with an Education, Health and Care Plan, where that applies). So, an employer of a 16 - 18 year-old will receive £4000.

    So what do you do next?

    Our friends at the HomeServe Foundation are here to help you take advantage of this grant getting the full benefit for your business.

    For Gas Engineers here in West Sussex, they’re partnering with Steve Willis Training who have advisors ready & waiting to take you through every step of the process, from finding your apprentice, to getting them working for you.

    All you need to do is call Colleen on 07720 736252 or email her at [email protected]

    And if you want more information, click here for everything you need to know.

    For you and your business, with demand from customers continuing to grow, and with grants available, there’s never been a better time to take on an apprentice. Take action now!
