Apprenticeship funding

A new scheme to help Richmondshire businesses employ apprentices has been launched.

Through the scheme businesses can receive up to £2,000 in grant aid and support for training and equipment when taking on a new apprentice.

The scheme is open to Richmondshire businesses that employ 50 people or less – with priority given to those with less than 20 members of staff; and with an annual turnover of less than £50 million. Both the business and the apprentice must be based in the district.

The criteria and application form can be found in supporting documents below.

The next deadline for applications is 12 noon on 1st May 2018. Applications should be fully completed before they will be considered.
