We do not hold this information. Work Coaches will identify young people who meet the relevant criteria and who are most likely to benefit from the support offered by the Kickstart Scheme. The Work Coach will encourage those young people to apply for suitable Kickstart job opportunities directly to the employer.

All applications are made directly to the employer and are not recorded centrally. Work Coaches in local Jobcentres will review the progress of applications made by individuals and where they have not been successful they will work with the young person to improve any future applications they are encouraged to make.
