Funding Boost to Get More Young People into Work – 31st July 2021 (England)

Businesses in England can apply for grants of £1,000 to help with the cost of providing a high-quality work placement for a trainee. The new scheme, announced by the UK Government, will support young people to gain the skills and experience they need to get a job or start further education or training, while boosting productivity and filling more jobs.

The funding, which is available until the 31st July 2021, will help with costs such as uniforms, travel expenses, and providing facilities. Employers will receive the bonus for every trainee they take on up to a maximum of 10 trainees, and can claim the cash incentive for all work placements that have been completed since the 1st September 2020.
