How Jolt's Kickstart Scheme Works?

Jolt acts as the administrator for the tech companies that sign up, allowing any firm — big or small — to participate.

Over 75 hours of live,  intensive, online training delivered by Jolt — and our teachers who are industry experts building the world’s most innovative companies — for each candidate over the first month of the 6-month program.

Jolt will match Kickstarters to companies through an interview process, making sure that employers get the right talent, and young people receive the right training before they start their placement.

Ongoing support for every candidate, with mentoring throughout the placement and constant access to support online through digital channels, including a dedicated Slack group.
