Kickstart Programme – funded work placements for young people
The Kickstart Programme is creating high-quality job placements for 16-24 year olds on Universal Credit, who are at risk of long-term unemployment. The placements are invaluable, as it gives them experience of working, whilst being paid for six months. The 25 hour per week placements will be fully funded at the national minimum wage and funding is also available to support the young person to develop new skills which will help them secure employment following the placement.
