The UK government offer incentive payments for hiring a new apprentice, which can be put towards anything to support your company's costs. For information on payments, requirements and application deadlines please visit the gov.uk website.

The payment is different to apprenticeship levy funds and you can spend it on anything to support your organisation’s costs. For example, you could spend it on facilities, uniforms, your apprentice’s travel or their salary. You do not have to pay it back.
