What is Adopt an Apprentice?  A financial incentive helps you cover the wage and recruitment costs of taking on an apprentice who has been made redundant from another employer.  It should be used to support an apprentice with employment for a minimum of 12 months.  The financial incentive is £5,000.  This is for Modern Apprenticeships and Graduate Apprenticeships.

A training provider must make the application for employers.  Employers can search for a training provider on apprenticeships.scot or call the employer helpline on 0800 783 6000.  Employers can also download the Adopt an Apprentice guidelines.
