Getting young people into the Kickstart Scheme

posted in: Courses, News | 0

Since December 2021 New Challenge has been supporting a number of young people recruited through the Government’s Kickstart Scheme for Richmond and Wandsworth councils.

This employment support and careers advice programme is focused on supporting a group of young kickstart placements in a range of areas such as CV development, interview techniques, skills assessments, written applications as well as practical support around settling into a new job and communicating with colleagues.

It is a pleasure to support young people who have had the crucial early years of their careers interrupted by the pandemic and we hope to help them build their confidence and resilience in the workplace. We have been impressed by the level of commitment, ambition, creativity and willingness to succeed and look forward to continuing to work closely with them in the coming weeks and months.
