Full government funding is available for an apprentice between 16-18 years old. If you are an apprentice 19+ years old your employer will be expected to contribute towards the cost of training.
While you are on an Apprenticeship, your employer pays you a salary and supports you whilst you undertake your training. Most of the training is ‘on the job’ within the workplace however the rest can be provided by a local college or by a specialist learning provider or in some cases it could all be undertaken by your employer.
The National Apprenticeship Service will pay the costs of your training depending on your age.
|Age||National Apprenticeship Service contribution|
|16 -18||up to 100%|
|19 – 24||up to 50%|
|25 +||Contribution for specified places|
