From 11 January 2022 you can apply for an incentive payment of £3,000 for new apprentices who join your organisation.

The payment is in addition to the Tees Valley Apprenticeship Support grant. You can spend it on anything to support your organisation’s costs. For example, on uniforms, your apprentice’s travel, or their salary. You do not have to pay it back.

To be eligible, the apprentices must both:

  • start their employment at your organisation between 1 October 2021 and 31 January 2022
  • start their apprenticeship between 1 October 2021 and 31 March 2022

You must apply directly through your apprenticeship service account. Click here for help in setting up your account.

The closing date for applications is 20 May 2022.
