Kickstart Training Providers

Employers offering work placements via the Kickstart scheme are making a commitment to provide training and employability skills to benefit the young people they employ. This will of course involve on-the-job training for the role they are undertaking, but also to help the young people into work after the 6 month placement ends.

As a gateway organisation, we have access to a variety of training and employability skills courses via our partnerships with Ayrshire College and DYW Ayrshire - view HERE
