Origin Designed is acting as a Gateway organisation for the UK Government Kickstart scheme. Employers who employ Kickstart candidates are required to provide employability support. The support includes employer support and guidance in the following areas:
- Timekeeping and Attendance
- CV Skills
- Interview Skills
Origin has collated a range of materials that have been designed to fulfil the Kickstart Employability Support criteria. These consist of a guidance and tracking document to help you administer the support and five modules covering work skills.
The modules are designed to be completed using a web browser and to be kept by each candidate to help them prepare for future employment opportunities. Employers are encouraged to complete the support activities by reviewing each Kickstart candidate's CV and by holding a mock job interview.
Employers are also encouraged to set targets for each candidate and to measure these by regular, documented performance reviews.

The Application is provided to You "AS IS" and "AS AVAILABLE" and with all faults and defects without warranty of any kind. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, the Company, on its own behalf and on behalf of its affiliates and its and their respective licensors and service providers, expressly disclaims all warranties, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise, with respect to the Application, including all implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement, and warranties that may arise out of course of dealing, course of performance, usage or trade practice.

Some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to You.
