Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Local Authorities now has devolved responsibility for the AGE grant from central Government.

Please see the FAQs to the left for more information on eligibility in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

From 1 May 2017 the following now apply:

This grant is not available for employers who recruit an apprentice on an apprenticeship standard.
You may also be eligible for incentive payments which are payable through your training provider. Please speak to them for further information.

Grants are on a first come first served basis and availability depends upon the age of the apprentice.

Currently we have 296 grants available for 16 to 18 year olds and 160 for 19 to 24 year olds.

The scheme will run until 31 July 2018.
