Funding advice

Our Business Training Solutions team will outline various funding schemes and Government grants that are open to employers for staff training.

Get £1,500 when you recruit an apprentice

Recruit an apprentice with Northumberland College and not only will you be providing your business with the skilled workforce it will need in the future but you could also get a grant of £1,500 from the Government.

Plus, you can now recruit up to a maximum of five apprentices and claim the grant five times.

Your business may be eligible for £1,500 if:
• it has less than 50 employees
• you employ a 16-24 year old apprentice
• you have never recruited an apprentice, or
• you haven't recruited an apprentice in the past 12 months


Various other staff training funding may be available depending on your business sector, just give us a call to find out more.
