Our Kickstart Gateway

A Kickstart Gateway is an organisation that helps employers to apply for Kickstart Scheme funding. As a government approved National Kickstart Gateway and training provider, TRAC can both help you to apply and also help you to provide the mandatory employability skills training to your Kickstart employee.

If you choose to apply for Kickstart Scheme funding through TRAC, we will gather the relevant information from you and make the application to the DWP on your behalf using our established contacts in the DWP.

We also offer a range of training packages. In order to ascertain that the funding is being used for its intended purpose, the DWP will expect evidence of the training and support that has been offered. If you opt to receive training from us, we will also take care of the relevant paperwork and evidence that the DWP will expect. The training package prices will automatically be deducted from the £1,500 set up and training grant.
