Adopt an Apprentice is a funding incentive of £2,000 or £5,000. It pays employers to take on an apprentice who has been made redundant through no fault of their own.
As an employer you take on either a Modern or Graduate Apprentice who completes their apprenticeship while they work with you.
Adopt an Apprentice covers all sectors. The Standard Rate funding grant is £2,000. For businesses in the oil and gas sector or supply chain, there is an Enhanced Rate funding grant of £5,000.
The funding helps to cover wage and recruitment costs. You will gain an experienced employee and help boost the local economy.
Your Learning Provider will apply for the grant for you but you need to provide information and sign the Funding Assistance Agreement (FAA). For help completing the FAA and application to the Adopt an Apprentice Grant, please read the Funding Assistance Agreement Completion Guide.
