Funding & Grants
The Apprenticeship Grant for Employers (AGE) supports businesses to recruit individuals aged 16 to 24 into employment through the apprenticeship programme that would not otherwise be in a position to do so. For some areas, the Grant is managed locally and eligibility criteria will be different to those set out here.
JTM will be able to advise you on the eligibility criteria of the AGE Grant scheme for your area and how much you may receive for recruiting a new Apprentice member of staff. *

The Apprenticeship levy is part of the government’s plan to increase the quantity and quality of Apprenticeships.
Only approximately 1.3% of companies who have a total employee pay bill above £3m a year or more will come into scope of the Levy and will come into effect in April 2017.
The levy rate is set at 0.5% of your pay bill in the November 2015 Comprehensive Spending Review.
As part of the Apprenticeship Reforms the way apprenticeships are funded will change with Levy payers paying through their Digital Account and non-levy payers ( SME’s) co-funding 10% their apprenticeships with their provider with 90% still funded from Government.
It is the Government’s commitment to still fully fund 16-18 apprenticeships with a £1,000 incentive to the employer to employ from this age group.

The Recruitment process
We will begin by discussing your company’s wants and needs from an apprentice. From this we can devise a job description and a personal profile that will fit your ideal candidate.
Create a Vacancy
Once we are sure of your ideal candidate, we will create a vacancy on the National Apprenticeship Service’s database. This will give your vacancy greater exposure and enhance the likelihood of getting your ideal apprentice.
Screening and Initial Interviews
All applications will come directly to us, which means you don’t have to wade your way through countless CV’s and cover letters (we’ll do that for you!). We will screen all of the applications that come through, and then make a short-list of people who best fit your description. These select few will be invited in for an initial interview at JTM, which allows us to see who we think would be suitable for the job.
Send the CV’s
At this stage we will send you the short listed CV’s along with a brief overview of our opinion’s at JTM. This will give you a greater insight into the potential candidate.
We’re almost there! Finally we will bring our short listed candidates for an interview at your head office. This will not only give you the opportunity to meet the potential candidates, but it will also give the learner a bit of an insight into their day-to-day life if they’re successful. Once you have decided on who you would like to recruit, we will enrol them on to the Apprenticeship database straight away to ensure that none of your funding gets delayed.
