Apprenticeship grant for employers of 16 to 24 year olds

Information for employers and training organisations about AGE 16 to 24.

The fact sheets and supporting documentation are valid for claiming AGE Grants for apprentices starting from 1 January 2016 to 31 March 2016. We are currently developing the AGE 16 to 24 programme for implementation from April 2016. We will issue revised eligibility criteria and provider claims processes in February 2016.

For some areas (currently Greater Manchester and Sheffield City Region and West Yorkshire Combined Authority) the grant is managed locally and eligibility is different from the criteria in the documents hosted on this site.

Information about the Greater Manchester AGE programme, the Sheffield City Region AGE programme and West Yorkshire Combined Authority AGE programme is available.
