What support will be offered to the young people to become more employable?

As a requirement for the Kickstart Scheme, placements must be provided with Kickstart Employability Training, this includes an outline of the following:

  • What support will be offered (for example helping them with writing their CV and preparing for an interview)
  • When you will provide this support (for example halfway through their job placement or towards the end)
  • How many hours it will take
  • Who will provide the support (for example you may already have a pre-existing relationship with training providers)
  • How you will monitor this support
  • How the young person can provide feedback during their job placement and afterwards, and how this will be acted on
