Kickstart gateway support
We believe the government’s Kickstart scheme has the potential to change lives, sustain and grow business and support the transition into a more just and sustainable future.
Our mission is to work collaboratively with gateways, representatives and support providers to drive impact towards these goals.
Employability Support – £495 per person
We offer a one-to-one employability service delivered by qualified and experienced careers advisers. Our support is delivered by video conferencing and is tailored to each individuals’ 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 “success themes” which we believe will make the difference improving young people’s employment prospects and helping them secure sustainable employment.
Core support themes
- 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
We also provide support to your ‘Kickstart employers’ helping them create and provide supportive and meaningful employment for young people.
We can deploy our employability service for all or some of your Kickstart employers at a fixed price of £495 per young person.
