Why are you processing my personal information?

In response to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis the Department for the Economy (DfE) has developed an Apprenticeship Recovery Package for Northern Ireland offering financial support to employers to recruit new and retain existing apprentices. There is also funding available via a grant, The Challenge Fund, which will provide a short to medium term benefit, and assist with mitigation of the impact of Covid-19 on the skills pipeline by expanding apprenticeship provision into new sectors, places, or types of employer.


In order to make payments to employers and successful grant applicants who take advantage of this funding, an application form is submitted to the Department by employers providing details of the company and their apprentice/s along with documentary evidence. Those who are applying for the Challenge Fund grants will submit their proposal and an outline of the project’s potential costs and submit claims for funding throughout the project which contain the documentary evidence required to process claims for payment.
