Kickstart scheme for employers

How the Kickstart Scheme works

The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new 6-month jobs for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment. Thousands of employers like you, across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors, have already applied for funding, which covers:

Don’t delay and apply right away. Employers can then spread the start date of your Kickstart jobs up until the end of 2021. 

You can now apply for a Kickstart Scheme grant by either:

  • applying online yourself
  • getting help from a Kickstart Gateway who is already working with the Kickstart Scheme

ALS are proud to be an official Kickstart Gateway, supporting the government’s drive to tackle unemployment. So, if you’re an employer looking to hire new talent or you're interested in giving a young person a 6 month fully-funded work placement, get in touch today: kickstart@alstraining.org.uk
