We pay grants to registered employers of up to £10,250 per apprentice.
The Apprenticeship Grant for employers is available in addition to any grants from us to help pay your apprentice’s wages.
You can apply for grants for individuals on approved apprenticeships at Levels 2 and 3, and higher apprenticeships in England, Wales and Scotland.

Travel expenses update
From 1 August 2019, the employer contribution to travel costs is as follows:
- The employer will be required to contribute £20 per week for travel costs to attend college. This rate will apply to apprentices starting from August 2019* or going into second year.
- For apprentices who are currently going into third year or above, where the employer contribution is at the old rate of £10 per week, this will continue at this rate until these apprentices have completed their apprenticeship.
*New apprentices must have started their first year with a College or other training provider on or after 1 August 2019, payment is subject to agreed conditions.
This will apply to all CITB Apprentices across Scotland, England and Wales and you can claim for expenses incurred from 1 August 2019 if you have kept your receipts.
