East Coast College is a gateway provider for Kickstart, which aims to support employers to apply for Kickstart placements.
Kickstart was created to help young people to develop work opportunities and employability skills and the government scheme provides funding to create new six-month job placements for those on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment.
Kickstart funding will cover the relevant National Minimum Wage for 25 hours per week, plus associated employer National Insurance contributions and employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions. There is also funding available to support young people to develop new skills and to help them move into sustained employment after they have completed their Kickstart funded job placement.
As an employer working with East Coast College through this scheme, you will also have access to a large pool of young people ready for an opportunity at your business.
To find out more about how you can apply for the scheme or ask any questions, please email our Kickstart team at email@example.com.
