Apprenticeship Employer Grant

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar asks that all applications for the Apprenticeship Employer Grant (AEG) are submitted by 5pm on 20 March. 

The Apprentice Employer Grant (AEG) is available to help employers recruit new Modern or Graduate Apprentices or assist with the upskilling of existing employees.   

The AEG offers £5,000 for employers taking on or upskilling a 16 to 24-year through a Modern or Graduate Apprenticeship, and for those aged up to 29 years who have a disability, are care experienced or are from a black, Asian or minority ethnic background.      

The AEG also offers £3,500 for employers taking on or upskilling an individual aged 25 and over through a Modern or Graduate Apprenticeship.    

If applications are for upskilling existing employees, the grant specifically supports those who have changed job roles within the last four months.
