Not only a cash boost, but when government covers nearly all the training costs this is an opportunity for your business.
With free guidance, support and impartial advice to assist your business in how apprenticeships can be utilised to their greatest benefit for the whole workforce, current and future. This is a great opportunity to get involved.
This opportunity is being funded by Lancashire County Council with 100 grants available to businesses with less than 250 employees in Lancashire, who have not recruited an apprentice in the last two years.
The funding is part of Lancashire’s Economic Recovery and Growth Fund and is targeted at the recruitment of 16-24 year old apprentices.
Apprenticeships are a fantastic route into engineering and Louis follows in the tracks of the senior management team at Airframe Designs who all started their careers via craft level apprenticeships. Employing apprentices is a more affordable and effective route to training and developing engineers, aligning with our core value to transform graduates into assets, except that we start this journey before they graduate.

How does it work?
If you’re thinking of apprenticeships but want to find out more. If you’re already recruiting or have an apprentice already to start, it doesn’t matter! This grant sits alongside any arrangement you have with a college, university or provider.
Payment is direct to the business in two equal instalments. The first payment follows the enrolment of the apprentice, and the second payment follows 90 days later (as long as the apprentice is still receiving training).
