Small Employers

The government will pay all the costs of training apprentices aged 16-18 for employers with fewer than 50 people working for them, up to the funding band maximum. The government will also pay the costs of apprentices aged between 19 and 24 who have previously been in care or who have a Local Authority Education, Health and Care plan for small employers.


Hiring an apprentice can bring a variety of benefits to your business. Work-based learning brings opportunities to both new and existing employees to learn the skills and knowledge to work more effectively. This will generate more productivity, more motivation, give more job satisfaction and more loyalty.

Ignite can help employers on the delivery of their apprenticeships and provide access to the government funding that will pay for all, or the majority of your apprentices training.
