Detail

AGE is now included in the funding rules which forms part of a training organisation’s funding agreement with the SFA. For 2015 to 2016 this can be found in the SFA funding rules 2015 to 2016 – version 2 – addendum 4. For 2016 to 2017 AGE is included as part of the Apprenticeship framework funding rules.

The apprenticeship grant for employers of 16 to 24 year olds (AGE 16 to 24) aims to support businesses, who would not otherwise be in a position to so, to recruit individuals aged 16 to 24 into employment though the apprenticeship programme.

The Skills Funding Agency will provide AGE 16 to 24 to eligible employers, that have qualifying apprentices, with an individual value of £1,500.

AGE 16 to 24 is for employers with fewer than 50 employees, who are new to apprenticeships or haven’t enrolled a new recruit or existing employee onto an apprenticeship programme in the previous 12 months. Employers can be paid up to 5 grants in total.

Employer terms & conditions and declaration

This agreement records the agreement between the employer receiving the AGE 16 to 24 and the training provider, who will administer the payment on behalf of the National Apprenticeship Service.
