Government Kickstart Scheme
The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new job placements, in England, Scotland and Wales, for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment. Employers of all sizes can apply for funding which covers:
100% of the National Minimum Wage (or the National Living Wage depending on the age of the participant) for 25 hours per week for a total of 6 months
associated employer National Insurance contributions
employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions
Employers can spread the start date of the job placements up until the end of December 2021.
A Kickstart Scheme application must be for a minimum of 30 job placements. Kickstart gateways can help employers with 29 or less job placements by applying for funding on their behalf.
Scottish Golf would assist in putting together schemes to achieve the criteria of 30 job placements ie these could be from 30 different clubs.
