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

What our members say

Meet the Expert – Art Workshop – "Good delivery and alternative resource options provided. There were clear explanations and questions to ask children were also provided."

Middle Leader Training – "Very inspiring leaders who answered all questions without making you feel at all silly. Loved it."

Deep Dive Subject Leader Training – "I so enjoyed the course. It made me realise how much I have to do in History, but so reassuring to have someone who knows what he is talking about!"

Develop your A Level Teaching – "Collaboration is a huge part of this project; CPD and teacher training works best when you’re doing it alongside colleagues. The 4 HEP principles make it clear to teachers what the bare bones of an excellent lesson look like."
