We have listed all the latest funding news to keep you up to date of new opportunities.
The grant is available until 31 December 2013, although they are available on a first come first served basis. Up to 10 grants will be available for each eligible employer, that is a maximum of £30000 for each care home that decides to take on Apprenticeship employees.
It is easy to apply for this grant, however, to be eligible employers must:
- confirm that they are not able to employ the apprentice without AGE 16 to 24
- have less than 1000 employees in the United Kingdom, as recorded by the Employer Data Service (EDS)
- not have had an employee ‘start’ an Apprenticeship in the 12 month period prior to the Apprenticeship ‘start’ date of the first apprentice for whom they are applying for the grant*
- commit to employ the apprentice for a minimum of 12 months on the Apprenticeship programme or the time it takes to complete the Apprenticeship, whichever is the greater
- confirm that they are aware of and do not breach any State Aid rules and
- agree to pay the apprentice, at least in line with legal minimum requirements.

The Knee High Design Challenge – Open call for ideas
We believe there is an urgent need for more innovation and experimentation in the early years.
We have seen a lot of investment going into the early years provision but not enough evidence that a substantial difference is being made. Children are still starting school without a fair and equal start in life, and we want to do something about it.
In partnership with Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity and the London Boroughs of Southwark and Lambeth, we are challenging you to take a completely new approach.
We are looking for great people with great ideas for radically improving the health and wellbeing of children under five living in Southwark and Lambeth today. Successful applicants will receive financial investment of up to £180,000 along with expert support and mentoring.
Closing date for applications: 30th September 2013

With the deadline of 2pm on 18 September fast approaching, we (Time to Change) wanted to highlight the opportunities available to applicants to get extra support with their application! [...]
