Employer cash incentives to double to £3,000 for adult apprentices

Did you know the government has increased incentive payments for hiring a new apprentice?

Employers will receive £3,000 for new employees of any age who start their apprenticeship from 1 April 2021 to 30 September 2021. The incentive payment is in addition to the £1,000 employers already receive for hiring an apprentice aged 16 to 18 years old or under 25 with an education, health and care plan or who has been in the care of their local authority.

This week we would have been holding our 6th Annual Apprenticeship Awards at the college however due to lockdown this is unable to take place so we are celebrating some award winners of the past and present!

In 2019, Zoe Wright, Wakefield College administrator was awarded the Wakefield College Apprentice of the Year.

“Completing my Apprenticeship at the College really helped to increase my confidence both in and out of work. It also gave me the opportunity for valuable work experience whilst completing my course of study.”

This is Thank You Thursday!
Throughout a difficult year everyone's resilience has meant 200+ apprentices have been able to continue to train for their future career.

“I had excellent support, motivation, and encouragement from my excellent tutor who got me over the finish line in summer 2020 with a distinction which I am extremely proud of,” Marcia Adey, L3 Team Leader Apprentice.

“I started at Wakefield College last year on the Level 1 Bricklaying course and this year I’ve progressed on to a Level 2 Bricklayer apprenticeship with Gleeson Homes. I’m really enjoying my apprenticeship as you can see the houses getting built from start to finish and it gives you an insight into what its like on site. The tutors are friendly, and the course is more advanced, you get to learn new techniques that will help me to become a fully qualified bricklayer. I would recommend an apprenticeship to anyone interested in bricklaying as a career as you learn more on the job and you earn a wage whilst doing it.”
