North East Lincolnshire businesses invited to apply for apprenticeship training cash

North East Lincolnshire Council is offering local businesses, groups, charities and voluntary organisations the opportunity to apply for funding to cover the cost of apprentice training.

The funding comes from part of the Council’s national apprenticeship levy allocation from the Government, which many businesses can apply for directly from GOV.UK but would have to pay a percentage towards.

The cash available to businesses may vary, and can only be used to cover the costs of the training and not salaries.

Local small and medium enterprises who do not pay the levy, and larger businesses who have used all of their own levy are able to apply for funds.

To be eligible, you will need to be signed up to the national apprenticeship service. You can do this on GOV.UK.

Councillor Stan Shreeve, portfolio holder for finance and resources at North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “Each year the Council gets an allocation of apprenticeship funding from the Government. Much of that funding is used in house to train apprentices, but often there is some left over.

“Instead of sending this back to the treasury, we want to be able to offer it to local businesses so that money benefits the local economy and helps up-skill local workers.

“I would urge any local businesses who wishes to employ an apprentice or wants to up skill current staff to get in touch and consider applying for this money.

“We’re especially interested in applications from businesses and organisations who commit some of their resources to adding social value to our borough.”
