Free event from Make UK to help kickstart next generation of talent

23 March 2021

Hosted by Make UK, the event will see guest speakers discussing how the government’s Kickstart scheme can provide the next generation of talent and skills.

Representatives of the Minister for Work and Pensions, and the Minister for Employment, will be among the guest speakers at the free virtual event on Wednesday 24 March.

Baroness Deborah Stedman-Scott OBE DL and Mims Davies MP will be joined at the Kickstart Your Future Makers event by Make UK's Skills Policy Expert, Bhavina Bharkhada, as well as a speaker from one employer already benefitting from the scheme.

Kickstart provides funding to employers to create job placements for 16-24-year-olds on Universal Credit. Employers of all sizes can apply for funding, which covers 100 percent of the National Minimum Wage for 25 hours per week for a total of six months. The scheme also covers employer NI contributions and employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions. 

The one-hour afternoon session will discuss how the scheme can:

• Attract talent to potential roles that are hard to fill with skill shortages
• Be a cost-effective method to select new applicants that would not normally be available
• Implement new processes, roles and ideas that would not normally be available.
• Provide additional resources to support business needs and existing staff
• Offer opportunities to younger people that may never have been previously available
• The importance of skills and the next generation within the manufacturing sector
