Government Kickstart Scheme

A brilliant opportunity for your business and young people

The last 18 months have been an uphill challenge for many people and businesses. We have been a Gateway for Kickstart since March and have witnessed incredible successes across a range of sectors

What is the Kickstart scheme?

A 6-month fully funded placement for a young person aged 16-24 who is claiming Universal Credit.  This can be a great boost to your business and bring new skills, ideas and energy during this period of re-growth.  As an original and trusted Gateway provider across the United Kingdom, we can guide you past the pitfalls and help you to develop your Kickstarter to add value and help you grow your business.  Benefits include: 

  • A training grant to cover development and equipment costs

  • Support with all aspects of the initial set up and ongoing process

  • Guidance and mentoring for your Kickstarter throughout the 6 months

  • Employment support for the young person at the end of the placement

The Kickstart scheme is a fantastic route into employment for many young people and can lead to further training options including apprenticeships, traineeships and more. We are proud of our track record as a very successful Gateway.
