  3. Kickstart Placement

For the purpose of this tender, you may wish to submit your interest in the delivery of Kickstart Modular and Kickstart Placement as a whole, or you may wish to submit your interest in delivery of only one of the elements.

  1. Kickstart Modular

Acknowledging individuals are not all at the same stage of development or in need of all aspects of the Kickstart Programme, they now have the opportunity to attend one or more of the elective training sessions of Kickstart Modular

  1. Opportunities, Options and Personal Toolkit
  2. Preparing a CV, making a job application
  3. Digital job search, the employment market
  4. Preparation for Interview
  5. Securing the job and sustaining the job

 

The five modules are delivered one morning per week (4 hours) for 5 weeks. Venue will be provided by KLP. Access to training resources i.e. laptops, ipads etc need to be discussed with the Development Officer prior to the delivery of training. It is anticipated 3 x Kickstart Module Programmes will be delivered during the course of 2020 (subject to funding).

  1. Kickstart Placement

A six-week programme which enables unemployed people to work with a locally based business on placement to complete an identified "project" on the job. The aim is to empower candidates to transfer skills into new careers. In addition, they will have the opportunity to undertake individual specialised training in the project field recommended by the employer. The link between employer and placement opportunities and a suitable candidate is a key piece of the work.

The Placement Programme to be delivered over a period of 6 weeks (flexible hours). It is essential for participants to take ownership of placements and a period of in-house training to be completed prior to starting placement. It is anticipated that all participants will be ‘work ready’ with a current up to date CV. Some participants may have completed Kickstart Phase 1 and 2 already and some may come with more experience and just need the placement as a means to getting them started on the employment path. KLP are interested in various forms of methodology for engaging with the participants, retention on the programme from start date, evaluation and identification of end goals.

Kickstart aims to engage with those considered living in highly disadvantaged areas using a targeted approach through engagement and referral processes. The programme is underpinned by the following:

  • A wider understanding of the challenges and barriers to progression in education, training or employment
  • Emphasis placed on the importance of setting goals and taking up of opportunities in the future.

 

The tenderer is asked to submit a proposal for the delivery of the Kickstart Programmes, together with a clear outline of the content and resources required. It will be the responsibility of KLP Development Officers to engage learners and refer to the programmes.

  • How you will respond to emerging needs and issues presenting as a group that may impact on attendance
