Kickstart Employability Support
We offer support for Hackney-based employers hosting Kickstart placements, providing a comprehensive programme for young people, designed to develop professional skills and foster personal development.
What We Do
We offer a comprehensive training and support programme for employers in Hackney who are hosting Kickstart participants, designed to develop key employability skills and offer pastoral support and ensure that young people get the most benefit from their placement.
At Immediate Theatre we have 24 years’ experience of delivering high-quality creative programmes and providing employability support to young people facing significant barriers to employment, education or training.
Why work with us?
Our Kickstart Support Plans are designed specifically for each individual participant, in line with their own goals & needs. We will work with you to ensure that your Kickstart Placements are supported to develop the skills and experience they need to progress into future employment. In addition to training & development, we offer enhanced pastoral support throughout the placement.
