Understanding the Kickstart Scheme

2 October 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:00 am BST

Join this information session with the local DWP to find out more about the new Kickstart Scheme for 16 to 24 year old job seekers.

The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to employers to create new 6-month job placements for young people who are currently on Universal Credit and at risk of long-term unemployment.

This is part of the government’s Plan for Jobs and aims to create hundreds and thousands of new, fully funded jobs across England, Scotland and Wales. The first placements are likely to be available from November. Funding will cover for each job placement:

100% of 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 extra funding to support young people to build their experience and help them move into sustained employment after they have completed their Kickstart Scheme funded job.

If you are an employer and are considering employing a trainee then it is to your benefit to fully understand the scheme and see how you can gain from it.
