Nottingham Apprenticeship Grant is back!


Nottingham City Council has secured funding through the European Social Fund and Youth Employment Initiative to deliver a programme of activities, known as Nottingham Works, to support NEET and unemployed City residents to re-engage with education, training and employment. One of the key activities is the Nottingham Apprenticeship Grant (NAG).

As a local employer you might be eligible for grant of £1,000 if you recruit an unemployed or economically inactive 16-24 year old Nottingham City resident as an apprentice between April 1st 2016 and 31st December 2017. For further details regarding the eligibility please read our FAQs.

If you wish to apply for the grant you will need to complete and return the application form and business assessment form. Once received, a member of the team will check your details and be in touch to discuss whether you are eligible and, if so, support you through process.

Should you have any queries about the grant please contact


This activity is part-financed by Nottingham City Council and the European Union through the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Youth Employment Initiative (YEI).
