Apprenticeship Recruitment Incentive News Post

Welsh companies that want to boost their business through hiring new apprentices this winter may be eligible for up to £3000 in a major new apprenticeship incentive. Cambrian Training is encouraging employers of all sizes who are recruiting to use the funding to hire apprentices to build the job specific skills needed to grow their business.

In these uncertain times, this new funding will give employers the additional support needed to take on apprentices who will help increase productivity and innovate their approach. At Cambrian, we have a flexible and highly skilled team ready to help you respond quickly and deliver a wide variety of industry certified apprenticeship qualifications that reflect the skills your company needs right now.

The full £3000 will be available for employers hiring a new apprentice from age 16-24 for over 30 hours and up to £1500 for less than 30 hours. Even employers hiring new apprentices over 25 can receive up to £2000 for those working over 30 hours, and £1000 incentive for over 25s working up to 30 hours.*

As one of Wales’ top training providers, we can now offer all employers across Wales the fantastic opportunity to advertise and promote their quality apprenticeship job opportunities online FREE of charge on the Apprenticeship Vacancy Service (AVS).
