We help organisations that apply directly for Kickstart funding to deliver exceptional employability support.
Ready. Set. Go. Employability support.
We offer a one-to-one employability service delivered by qualified and experienced careers advisers. Our coaching sessions are delivered by video conferencing and tailored to each individual’s starting point and career goals.
The support covers
- Helping new Kickstart employees prepare for day one with their new employer
- Helping participants settle into their new Kickstart role, adjusting to new routines and adopting positive workplace behaviours
- Helping participants identify and embrace the learning and development opportunities offered during their Kickstart employment
- Helping participants plan for and work towards their future career goals
We cover the core themes as specified in the DWP Kickstart Funding agreement as well as our own ‘success themes’ which we believe will make the difference in improving young people’s employment prospects and helping them secure sustainable employment.
Work search support – career choices, career planning, job search, CVs and interviews
Transferable skills – including teamwork, attendance, communication and timekeeping
Growth mindset – developing positive behaviours
Resilience – overcoming challenges
By working with young people so closely across the whole placement period, means we get to know them well. This can help your team too. If you have queries, concerns or development ideas for a particular young person we can provide a second opinion or help resolve problems.
We can deploy our employability service to all your Kickstart employees at a fixed price of £495 per person.
We will also track the impact our partnership has on the career prospects of young people with post-Kickstart impact research.
