Department for Work and Pensions

Integer Training has been appointed by the Department for work and pensions (DWP) as a gateway provider for the Government’s Kickstart scheme.

 The Kickstart Scheme is a £2 billion fund to create hundreds of thousands of high-quality 6-month work placements for young people aged 16-24 on universal credit.

Employers from all industries and across the private, public, and voluntary sectors can get involved.  Employers can spread the start date of the job placements up until the end of December 2021.

Employers will receive funding to cover the following costs

  • 100% of the National Minimum Wage for 25 hours per week for a total of 6 months
  • Associated employer National Insurance Contributions
  • Employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions

The Department for work and pensions (DWP) will send the funding to Integer as the Kickstart Gateway and we will then forward the funding onto the employer. Integer can also provide support, mentoring and training where required and agreed with employers.
