Incentive Grant Payments for redundant apprentices

A number of members have asked whether employers taking on disaplced redundant apprentices can receive the new hire incentive grants.

We have done some digging and can confirm that employers who take on redundant apprentices who started their apprenticeship prior to August 2020 are in scope for the new incentive payment. However, how much of it they receive depends on how far the apprentice was through their programme when they started with the new employer.

There is more information on this in the employer version of the FY20-21 ESFA funding rules but a fuller explanation can be found by members on our Ask Ashworth blog.
