From education to employment

Can your business benefit from Government grants for apprenticeships?

@NewburyCollege and University Centre Newbury (@UCNewbury) can assist you in creating the perfect programme to suit your needs 

We all know that apprenticeships add value to organisations and I was thrilled to hear Rishi Sunak supporting this fantastic programme in his new Plan for Jobs, with government grants of up to £2,000. 

Apprenticeships enable businesses to develop a highly skilled and motivated workforce that will be crucial in rebuilding the UK economy as we slowly return to “business as usual”, and Mr Sunak’s announcement has provided an additional incentive:

  • £2,000 to hire Apprentices aged 16-24 years 
  • £1,500 to hire Apprentices aged 25+ 

At Newbury College and University Centre Newbury (UCN), we can support your business in utilising levy funds, accessing government grants, choosing the right apprenticeship, recruiting candidates or developing existing members of staff. 

Our business team can assist you in creating the perfect programme to suit your needs. We deliver apprenticeships across multiple sectors and industries, supporting a wide range of business functions, including both technical and support roles. 

We hope that you will continue to support us with our mission to provide a career route for young people through our ‘Careers not Courses’ initiative.
