Apprenticeships at B&FC


Employers hiring apprentices between 1 April and 31 January 2022 will receive from the government £3,000 each, regardless of age.

An additional £1,000 will be paid for those aged 16 to 18 and those under 25 with an Education, Health and Care Plan - meaning employers of these apprentices during the same time period will receive £4,000 each in total.
