Kickstart Employability Essentials – Mission Performance

5th July @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm


The Kickstart Scheme

The Kickstart Scheme is a £2 billion fund to create hundreds of thousands of high quality 6-month work
placements for young people aged 16-24, who are claiming Universal Credit. Hampshire Chamber of
Commerce is working alongside the British Chambers of Commerce and is a recognised gateway in
coordinating business responses.

An important part of the grant application is evidencing the training and support you will provide. Hampshire Chamber of Commerce is tasked by the Department of Work & Pensions (DWP) to make sure the training is completed for CV and Cover Letter writing also Interview Techniques. To support employers who are not able to offer these as in-house training, Kickstart Scheme Training Courses have been created, specifically to support with your Kickstart Scheme grant application compulsory declaration and evidence that “you provide employability support to young people”.

All of the training we offer has been designed around the candidates that will be on the Kickstart Scheme, and we’re keen to help them to develop and move forward with their careers either with you or somewhere else at the end of their placements.

There are multiple dates available for the training which can be booked below. Those on the Kickstart scheme only need to attend 1 date. the course content and material remains the same.
