A Kickstart gateway already has a Kickstart Scheme grant agreement with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). They can add employers and job placements to this grant agreement and will:
- Gather information about the job placements you would like to offer
- Share this information with DWP on your behalf
- Pay the funding to you (for example the young person’s salary) and any setup funding agreed between the employer and gateway
By applying through us, the young people you recruit will gain free and exclusive access to our Kickstart Academy which will provide free employability skills training and support, helping you meet your employability obligations under the scheme.
