Kickstart Scheme Training

Young people in Wolverhampton at risk of long-term unemployment are to be given work experience placements by the city council and local businesses, under a new scheme set to be approved next week.

The ‘Kickstart’ programme will see the council providing up to 180 young people aged 16-24 with paid employment postings within their own services, along with those of a number of partnership firms.

Launched nationally last month, the Government-funded scheme is being run in conjunction with the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) and will provide placements until December 2021.
