Apprenticeship Recovery Package

The Department for the Economy (DfE) has been developing an Apprenticeship Recovery Package for Northern Ireland that will channel financial support to local businesses to help the apprenticeship system respond to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis.

The Apprenticeship Recovery Package includes short term interventions which are targeted to reduce significant longer term economic impacts. These interventions aim to reduce unemployment and ensure that employers continue to have access to people with the skills and qualifications needed to maintain productivity, to grow their businesses and to assist in closing the skills gap, ensuring that more people have a pathway to better paying jobs. 

More detailed information has now been launched on the individual measures contained within the recovery package – these can be found below:
