Progress on the Kickstart scheme

This week it has been announced that the flagship Kickstart Scheme has supported over 16,500 young people into jobs since it launched last year - helping our next generation of workers take their vital first step in securing a good job.

  • Young people are often hardest hit in challenging times like these, which is why we have put them at the heart of our Plans for Jobs – and last year launched our Kickstart Scheme which provides new, subsidised jobs for young people on Universal Credit between 16-24.
     
  • More than 260 young people have started a Kickstart Job every day in the last six weeks alone - bringing the total to more than 16,500 across the country, with more to come as our economy unlocks in line with the roadmap.
     
  • This will help to give more young people the opportunity to succeed as we level up the entire country and build back better.
