As part of a larger jobs support package cash incentives for hiring apprentices will run until end of January 2022

As part of his ‘Plan for Jobs’ Rishi Sunak announced financial incentives in 2020 for employers who hire apprentices. These bonuses of £3,000 for every apprentice a business hires ended in September, but Sunak has prolonged the scheme by four months until the end of January.

Speaking at the Conservative Party Conference Sunak said he is “ready to double-down” on his promise to “do whatever it takes” to recover from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
