Is there a limit to the amount of Apprenticeship training we can do? No. You can recruit as many apprentices and put as many existing and new staff on Apprenticeship programmes as you want. You will also receive an incentive payment of £1,000* for every apprentice aged: • 16-18; or • 19-24 who is a care leaver or has a Local Authority Education, Health & Care Plan. *Incentive payments are made in two equal instalments of £500; the first after the apprentice has been on programme for three months and the second after the apprentice has been on programme for 12 months. It may take up to nine weeks after the payment dates for the funds to be processed and transferred.
