What is the Kickstart scheme?

WHAT IS THE KICKSTART SCHEME?

The Kickstart Scheme is a £2 billion fund to create hundreds of thousands of high quality 6-month work placements for young people. It was announced on the 8th July after the Chancellor announced the Kickstart Scheme as part of the Plan for Jobs.

THE BASICS

Funding available for each job will cover the relevant National Minimum Wage for 25 hours a week, plus the associated employer National Insurance contributions and employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions. There will also be funding available to support young people to develop new skills and to help them move into sustained employment after they have completed their Kickstart funded job.

IF YOU CAN OFFER NEW, 6 MONTH PLACEMENTS TO YOUNG PEOPLE, THE GOVERNMENT WILL FULLY FUND THE POSITION.
