Funding boost for apprenticeships aimed at small firms

The Apprenticeship Grant for Employers (AGE) programme is to receive further funding worth £170 million over the next two years, in order to encourage small companies to take on apprentices. From January 2015, AGE will focus entirely on small companies (i.e. those with fewer than 50 employees), with benefits incorporating a £1,500 grant for employers who have not taken on an apprentice in the previous year.  A further £20 million will be made available to companies taking on degree-level or postgraduate apprentices.
