Two years ‘Fees Free’ for construction apprenticeships

Most of the talk in the media about the Government’s new fees free initiative has been about school leavers intending to go to university, who will get just one year’s free tuition fees.

Not many employers or students in the construction sector realise this initiative extends to apprenticeships for not one, but two years.

From 1 January 2018, industry training is fees-free for the first two years of an apprenticeship for eligible first-time learners and apprentices enrolling in eligible programmes beginning in 2018.

Learners can begin their training at any time in 2018 and be eligible for the next 24 months fees-free.
