So what's new?

The Grants Scheme now supports Higher Level Apprenticeships from September 2017

We will phase in a number of changes from April 2018

  • From April 2018, the Grants Scheme will not provide supplementary grants. Enhanced rates of 10% will still apply to apprenticeships already started before April 2018.
  • In addition to apprenticeships and qualifications, there will be a defined list of over 500 short duration courses that are eligible for grant.
  • Training plans will no longer be used to access the Grants Scheme.
  • Grant support payments will be automated on successful completion of training.
