Guidance

Youth Employment UK has now created a Kickstart Guide for Employers to help support and advise them to create a good quality Kickstart Programme for the Candidate.

This resource has been created by Youth Employment UK to support employers and gateway organisations looking to create Kickstart Programmes. We have consulted with the young people in our network to explore what a good Kickstart Programme would look like to them and have embedded their views into this guidance.

The Edge Foundation has published a Skills Shortage Bulletin tracking ongoing and emerging trends in the UK labour market. This edition includes a focus on green jobs and the digital sector, both of which have been at the centre of much of the discussion about future economic recovery.

Covid 19, is unsurprisingly a common theme in this edition. Notably, the latest research suggests that the pandemic has not necessarily created new challenges so much as accelerated existing ones.

The Institute for Employment Studies (IES) has published a briefing note with analysis of the Labour Market Statistics published this month. The analysis mainly draws on Labour Force Survey data covering September to November 2020, supplemented by analysis of Pay As You Earn Real Time Information data, the ONS Vacancy Survey and administrative data from the benefits system on Universal Credit and Jobseeker’s Allowance.

The Inquiry brought together insights and testimonies from sector experts, housing providers, and residents from across England to examine the barriers working age people in social housing face in securing employment and progressing in work.

In its report published on 20 October 2020, Improving Opportunities: How to support social housing tenants into sustainable employment, written by UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE), the Inquiry:

  • Identifies a need for funding certainty, devolved programmes to support employment opportunities
  • Spotlights how to improve employment and training for thousands of people across the UK
  • Suggests social housing provides affordability, stability people need to secure employment

Research

Leonard Cheshire has published an excellent report based on the findings from a survey of disabled workers and employers. The survey found that in the UK, 71% of disabled people who were employed in March 2020 have found that their work has been impacted by the pandemic. In Scotland this increases to 82%, in Wales 69% and in Northern Ireland 58%. The Locked Out of the Labour Market report produces a number of recommendations for Government and BASE fully supports them. The recommendations link well with the proposals in the Access to Jobs campaign.

The Resolution Foundation has published a report evaluating the effects of the current economic crisis on the UK labour market. 

In association with the Bloomfield Trust, the Employment and Enterprise team at National Autistic Society (NAS) has launched a new employment programme, Autism at Work. The programme supports employers to promote job opportunities to autistic job seekers. It then supports applicants through the recruitment process and successful candidates to prepare for and succeed in their role. 

BASE has joined with a coalition of organisations to press the case for better jobs support for young people who have a disability. The recent Plan for Jobs announcements have included employer incentives for taking on apprentices and traineeships but there is no comparable incentive for Supported Internship participants. We're asking for easier access and good quality support for young people on Kickstart, more Disability Employment Advisors and parity for Supported Internships.

BASE member Ambitious About Autism has announced a pioneering partnership with Santander Universities UK and 17 high profile higher education institutions. Employers can join the programme for free to access autistic talent, training and support as well as salary costs fully funded by Santander Universities UK. 

Professionals can also register their autistic clients who have attended one of the partner universities. To find out eligibility for this unique and ground-breaking programme for autistic students and graduates, register your interest.
