The grant available for each apprentice employed is £3,000.

Councillor Liz Redfern, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “It is important we support local businesses as much as possible, which is why we have created the business apprenticeship grant scheme. We want to create new job opportunities in North Lincolnshire and apprenticeships are a great way for people to start a new career.
“If you are a local business looking to expand your company and would be interested in employing an apprentice then contact us to register your interest for the next round of funding.”
