To be eligible for the grant you must;

When will I receive payment?

Eligible employers qualify to receive payment of AGE 16 to 24, value £1,500, once a qualifying apprentice has completed 13 weeks ‘in-learning’ on their Apprenticeship programme; as defined by the Skills Funding Agency’s programme funding rules and recorded on the Individual Learning Record submitted by the training provider; i.e. not just 13 weeks in employment. The Skills Funding Agency will transfer AGE 16 to 24 funds to the training provider. It may take up to nine weeks after the 13 week qualification point for the funds to be processed and transferred to the training provider. The training provider must make arrangements to pay the funds to the employer within 30 days of receipt from the Skills Funding Agency.

How do I receive the money?

Once the College has received your grant money, you will be informed by the Business Development Team and a cheque will be sent to you in the post.
