Following the first meeting of the CBI’s youth employment taskforce back in July, we are pleased to invite you to a second session focused on the government’s new Kickstart Scheme. The scheme will fund the direct creation of hundreds of thousands of additional 6-month Kickstart roles jobs for young people at risk of long-term unemployment and will also include wider support for participants to improve their longer-term employability. It will give young people the chance to build their confidence and skills in the workplace, and to gain experience that will improve their chances of progressing to find long-term, sustainable work.
We will be keen to explore, in a Chatham House B2B environment with you:
We will be joined by members of the CBI People and Skills team who are leading on this area of work:
We are aiming this session specifically at members who have already submitted an expression of interest to DWP (or are in the process of doing so), and/or are planning to act as an employer intermediary or ‘Kickstart gateway’ organisation.
