The Welsh Government has set out how it plans to spend £40m on apprenticeships over the next two years.
Its plans include:
- Creating 5,650 new apprenticeship places
- An enhanced wage subsidy of £3,900 over 52 weeks for employers taking on young apprentices aged 16-24 through the Young Recruits Programme
- A one-off payment of £500 for small and micro businesses to cover the time and costs they said were a barrier to recruiting apprentices
- £3.4m to support people who wish to do apprenticeships in the Welsh language
It follows a report last October which found that not enough businesses here are exploiting the full potential of apprentices.
