Financial support available for York businesses hiring apprentices

City of York council is supporting the creation of new apprenticeships in local businesses and charitable organisations via the Apprenticeship Levy Transfer Scheme.

Funding is being drawn from the ongoing Apprenticeship Levy Transfer Scheme, and has already seen applications from a range of businesses in and around York.

Businesses who recruit new apprentices, or expand on existing staff, can receive support through both this council-run scheme and through government incentives.

Applications for this window of the scheme are available up until 30 June.

York businesses and charitable organisations are being encouraged to come forward if they would like to take part in the scheme, which is part of the council’s continuing efforts to encourage the creation of new training and employment opportunities.

The creation of new apprenticeships is seen as key to the continuing recovery and development of York’s economy, providing vital training for people looking to start a career in a new industry.

Andrew Waller, Executive Member for the Economy and Strategic Planning, City of York Council, said: “Re-opening businesses in York have created new opportunities for employment, especially in the important run up to Christmas.

“Apprenticeships are a great way for employers to help train a new generation of staff, and bring great benefits to the local community and our economy.”
