Tees Valley apprenticeship grant

The Tees Valley Combined Authority is offering a fantastic grant for businesses who are committed to creating new apprenticeship opportunities in the Tees Valley area. The grant supports SME’s with less than 249 employees that create apprenticeship opportunities for those aged 16-20 within priority sectors.


Businesses in the Tees Valley, Hartlepool and Darlington areas can benefit from a grant to fund 100% of an apprentice’s wages in their first six months of employment, and 50% for the remainder of the apprenticeship (up to a maximum of two years). The Grant supports SME’s who create Apprenticeships in sectors facing high demand and growth from employers as identified in the Tees Valley Strategic Economic Plan.


The Priority Sectors being supported by the Grant are:

  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Process, Chemicals and Energy
  • Logistics
  • Health and Biologics
  • Digital and Creative
  • Business and Professional Services
  • Construction
  • Health Care
  • Culture and Leisure
  • Education


This support is specifically designed to target young people (aged 16-20) who are not currently in education, employment or training, whilst boosting youth employment in the region.
