Kickstart Scheme

Kickstart Scheme

We’re a gateway organisation for the government’s Kickstart scheme. This means we can support employers taking on less than 30 roles.


Employability Skills Support

As part of the Kickstart Scheme we can also support your placements with employability skills training, short course and tasks, CV building and interview techniques. 

If you cannot provide this in house please talk to us about using ‘My Employability Hub’.
