Today’s Spring Budget say the government announcing that they will extend and increase the payments made to employers in England who hire new apprentices.
Employers who hire a new apprentice between 1 April 2021 and 30 September 2021 will receive £3,000 per new hire, compared with £1,500 per new apprentice hire (or £2,000 for those aged 24 and under) under the previous scheme.
