The Kick Start Blog
Classic Race Simulators are committed to helping young people who are at risk of long-term unemployment. We have enrolled onto the Government’s Kickstart scheme to give work experience to 4 local youngsters. By the end of the placements they will have 6 months of experience in a real work environment and developed the skills necessary to secure long term employment.
We are supported by ETACS The DWP and Rushmoor Borough Council to deliver this important initiative.
We will keep you up-to-date with their progress in the weekly blog written by the participants.
