The Kickstart Scheme – everything you need to know

The government’s £2 billion Kickstart Scheme has been in place since September 2020. The government’s aim is for the scheme to support young people to develop new skills, which will help them move into sustained employment after they have completed their job placement. Thousands of jobs have already been created under the scheme.

Since the Kickstart scheme’s launch there’s been some key updates – specifically a broadening of the scheme’s eligibility – which makes it easier for small and medium-sized business to access.

Our HR & Employment Law experts have put together a short roundup of the scheme’s aims, funding available to businesses, eligibility and the application process.
