Helping you get ahead and Kickstart your career

The Prince’s Trust helps 11 to 30-year-olds to develop the skills and confidence they need to get a job or start a business. A million young people have already started something with The Prince’s Trust over the past 45 years, becoming health workers, sports coaches and fashion designers. Could you be next?

We believe every young person should have the chance to embrace exciting opportunities, which is why we run free courses across the UK for young people just like you.

We’re working with ManpowerGroup, a leading recruitment firm, to help you access Kickstart opportunities with employers from across the country.

About Kickstart & Our Support

Are you aged 16-24 and claiming Universal Credit?

If so, you could secure a six-month paid job with a local employer through the Government’s Kickstart Scheme. The scheme could give you the opportunity to get paid work and build your experience and skills, working with a company that is committed to supporting your progression. It will include employability support from organisations like The Prince’s Trust as part of your job so you can gain skills to use on the job, and beyond!

Talk to your work coach at your local Jobcentre today and find out whether the scheme is right for you. Find your local Jobcentre and find out what opportunities there are in your area.
