Welcome to the Kickstart Scheme for Bridgwater and Taunton College Trust (BTCT). We are so pleased to be involved in this scheme to help develop your future career prospects. As a Multi-Academy Trust, our vision is to ensure our students have the opportunities to develop academically and personally; we are very excited to provide you with this opportunity to develop your career opportunities.

Kickstart Scheme is a new National Government initiative designed for 18 to 24 Year Olds who are not in employment, education or training. The aim of the scheme is that through real work experience & job placements offered by organisations, you will develop the valuable skills and knowledge to better help you find work after completing the scheme.?

As an organisation taking part in the Kickstart Scheme, we can offer:

  • 6 Month paid placements at National Minimum Wage (25 hours per week)
  • Support in obtaining level 1 or 2 (or both) qualifications in English and Maths if you do not already hold these.
  • Individual CEIAG (Careers, Employment, Information, Advice and Guidance) sessions to enable you to identify and plan your next steps at the end of your placement.
  • Sessions with an employment coach. This includes mock interviews, support with completing application forms, support with writing and developing a CV, and psychometric profiling.
  • Upskilling of ICT skills. You will be provided the opportunity to gain the ECDL qualification in IT.
  • Access to on-going training. You will be expected to take part in our continuous programme of professional development.  This is a combination of online tuition – for example with aspects of work such as Child Protection, and more practical ‘on the job' training, such as Manual Handling.
  • Access to a professional mentor who will act as a key point of contact.

Why take part in the Kickstart Scheme with Bridgwater and Taunton College Trust?

We are a friendly group of 7 likeminded schools based in Bridgwater, West & South Somerset.
