Cross phase – Kickstart Scheme

HEP is a Kickstart Gateway organisation that has successfully applied for funding through the Kickstart Scheme to represent HEP schools.

The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new job placements for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment.

HEP has secured 176 roles across 36 schools.

HEP is the central point of contact for all matters relating to the Kickstart scheme including  communication with the DWP and the employability programme partners. Each school will be allocated a Kickstart project manager to support the employees success in the role, additional  training support and their future employability.

Kickstart project manager - Nikola Standing

Kickstart project manager - Emma Pett
