VOLA Consortium intends to act as an Intermediary body for the Government’s new Kickstart job creation scheme for 16-24 year olds, which provides 6-month funded work placements for young people who are out of work.
The scheme is managed nationally by the DWP. Employers need to have 30 job placements to apply directly to the DWP for funding, which is highly unlikely for the vast majority of local VCFSE employers.
VOLA will bring together VCFSE sector employers to create sufficient numbers of placements to engage with the DWP.
VOLA is working in partnership with VS6 to ensure as many VCSFE employers across the Liverpool City Region are able to access the scheme.
We are running 3 online workshops to brief the sector on the Kickstart scheme and generate interest in getting involved on:
• Friday 9th October, 11am – 12:15pm
• Tuesday 13th October, 11:30am – 12:45pm
• Thursday 15th October, 2:30 – 3:45pm
