Apprenticeship and Training Grants

If you have been a full, contract manufacturing or small business member of the MTA for at least one year, and your company has an annual turnover of £10million or less, you should be eligible to apply for one of our grants or loans.

  • Apprenticeship Grants of up to £4,000 to help you take on an apprentice (£3,000 for the company and a £1,000 travel grant for the apprentice) 
  • Apprenticeship Loans (interest-free) of £10,000 to help you take on an apprentice
  • Training Grants of up to £750 to support Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Along with the application forms, there is a document at the bottom of this page containing the application criteria for Training Grants, Apprenticeship Grants and Apprenticeship Loans, as laid out by the Education & Developement Committee. The framework is indicative and for guidance purposes for applicants.  If you are in any doubt about whether or not your company qualifies for a grant, please contact Joshua Dugdale by email or call 0207 298 6400.

Please note the grants are allocated based on the criteria of the Trust Funds that the MTA administers.  The Education & Development Committee has full discretion and its decision is final.
