WHAT IS THE KICKSTART SCHEME?
The Kickstart Scheme is part of the Chancellors Plan for Jobs and aims to create six-month work opportunities for young people aged 16 to 24 who are claiming Universal Credit and are at risk of long term unemployment. Through the scheme, employers will get 100% of employment costs for up to 25 hours a week.
The plans were announced in July 2020, as part of the government’s Plan for Jobs.

Focusing on developing key employability skills and insights into different industries, as part of this. We have links with companies and Programmes, and if you do not decide to take on your Kickstart placement(s) full time, after the 6-month term, then Pathway CTM will be able to support with next steps into further employment opportunities.
