Employ an Apprentice

 

Throughout the year, we can offer your company a choice of excellent Apprentices to fill your office-based positions.

 

How will an Apprentice help my company?

Our Apprentices are all aged 16+ and studying either Business Administration, Customer Service, IT or Social Media. The main advantages of employing an Apprentice from Hull Business Training Centre are as follows:

  • We will shoulder the cost of recruitment.

  • We will hand you a choice of suitable candidates.

  • The minimum full-time wage for an Apprentice aged 16+ is £3.40 per hour.

  • You and your Apprentice will receive full support from our dedicated team of tutors, assessors and support staff.

  • You will be making an investment in your future.

Apprenticeship Grant for Employers

The Apprenticeship Grant for Employers of 16 to 24 year olds (AGE 16 to 24) aims to support businesses, who would not otherwise be in a position to do so, to recruit individuals aged 16 to 24 into employment though the Apprenticeship programme.

The Grant, worth £1,500 for each eligible apprentice, has already helped thousands of employers to grow their business by employing an apprentice. The Grant is still available subject to eligibility and availability. Could it help you too?

To be eligible you must:

  • confirm that you are not able to recruit an apprentice without the Grant

  • have fewer than 50 employees in the United Kingdom

  • not have had an employee start an apprenticeship in the 12 month period before the start date of the first apprentice for whom you apply for the Grant. If you are eligible, you can claim up to 5 Grants during the time the Grant is available.
