Kickstart Scheme- What you need to know and how to get involved

The Kickstart Scheme is a £2 billion government fund to create hundreds of thousands of high quality, six-month job placements for young people.

The Colleges expert teams will help employers access funding and guide them through the process to make it easy for businesses to access a large pool of young people with potential, ready for an opportunity. The government will fund 100% of job placements, including:
• The relevant national minimum wage for 25 hours a week
• The associated employer National Insurance contributions
• 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. The initial priority will be young people, aged between 16 and 24, who are ready for an opportunity and will be supported by their Jobcentre Plus work coach to enrol in the scheme.
