April 12th 2019


Thought about taking on an apprentice? Why not apply for the Harborough business grant for apprenticeships?
Businesses in the Harborough District can apply for funding to help them take on apprentices. Harborough District Council is making grants of up to £750 available to encourage apprenticeships and promote the benefits they can offer businesses.
To be eligible to receive the grant, you need to meet these criteria:
• Your business must be located in Harborough District
• Apprentices must be residents of Harborough District
• The business must have fewer than 150 employees
• The business must not have taken on an apprentice in the previous two years (although there may be flexibility on this, depending on circumstances)
The application process is managed by Leicester Apprenticeship Hub. Click here to apply for grant.
The Leicester Employment Hub website has a range of information on apprenticeships and how they can help your business.

Harborough Innovation Centre is owned and supported by Harborough District Council (HDC). As the building owner HDC also funds the Centre’s business support provision, providing the basis for expert business advice, mentoring and workshops.
