Youth Employment UK are delighted to be hosting a free-to-access webinar for employers and providers thinking about the government’s new Kickstart Scheme.
Join our expert panel including DWP Kickstart Policy Leads, young people and Youth Friendly Employers Coca-Cola European Partners and ABP UK as we explore together the opportunities and challenges of Kickstart and how to create high quality placements.
In its recent work the Youth Employment Group has identified that the UK needs to create 1000 opportunities a day in order to bring youth unemployment back down to pre-covid levels. As we head into a potentially turbulent winter the immediate landscape does not look good for young people and they have already been the hardest hit by the economic impact of coronavirus.
Kickstart is just one part of the #Planforjobs announced by the treasurer and it will be important to ensure its success. Developing good quality placements for those young people who need them most will be at the heart of this webinar and attending organisations will leave with some practical resources and tips to develop their own #YouthFriendly Kickstart Programme.
