Recently the Government has relaxed the eligibility criteria for apprenticeships in somerset and to coincide with this move has developed a government apprenticeship grant for businesses that have not taken on an apprentice within the last year and have under 1, 000 employees currently working there.

The apprenticeship grant for £1,500 is eligible for up to 10 apprentices and the individuals will need to be within a 16-24yr old age range to be suitable for the scheme.
