You can apply if you’re levy-registered with CITB and up to date with your levy returns. You also need to meet our general Grants Scheme terms and conditions.
If we are your Apprenticeship provider, your dedicated Apprenticeship Officer will help you complete your application paperwork correctly. As long as we receive the correct paperwork within 20 weeks of the start of the Apprenticeship, we will begin making your grant payments, backdated to this start date.
Your attendance grant will be paid automatically every 13 weeks.
