The Apprentice Employer Grant (AEG) is financial support for employers to recruit new apprentices as well as upskill existing employees who have moved into a new role and where the apprenticeship provides the means of upskilling for the new role.
This grant has been put in place by the Scottish Government to help employers support the costs of work training for apprentices. The employer must engage with a provider such as ourselves that is contracted by SDS to deliver Modern Apprenticeship frameworks.
