This policy memo examines the evidence on youth unemployment schemes, and in particular the forerunner Future Jobs Fund, to highlight three factors which can materially improve the likelihood of new, sustainable job placements being created: effective local partnerships, substantial private sector involvement and targeting of support.
We provide seven recommendations which show how Kickstart can be implemented in a way that will enhance these three factors, while at the same time supporting related agendas around devolution, responsible business, and levelling up.
