Apprenticeship grants

At Automate UK we’re all about championing rising talent and supporting businesses in this forward-looking industry. But, did you know that PPMA BEST offers a limited number of apprenticeship grants throughout the fiscal (tax) year?

What financial support is available?

Grant applications are invited from recently employed engineering apprentices, where the trustees will consider awarding £1,000 to the apprentice to help him/her with their studies.

The PPMA BEST Apprenticeship Grant has also been designed to support non-levy paying companies who don’t have previous experience employing an apprentice. Subject to eligibility, a grant award of £2,000 is available to the sponsoring company.

How to apply?

To apply, please download a copy of the Apprenticeship Grant form and submit your completed version to: PPMA BEST Education Grants, PPMA BEST, New Progress House, 34 Stafford Road, Wallington, Surrey SM6 9AA
