Latest news on the Work Programme

Figures released by the Employment Related Services Association have shown that 321,000 long term unemployed jobseekers have now found a job on the Work Programme. June has seen a number of charities ending their involvement with the Work Programme. The proportion of students in every state-funded mainstream school, college and local authority in England who progressed to further or higher education, or went into employment or training, has been revealed by the Department for Education. The voluntary sector’s paid workforce grew by six per cent over 2011–12, according to Skills-Third Sector’s analysis of the Labour Force Survey. Finally, the Centre for Economic and Social Inclusion has said that the contractual measure that the Department for Work and Pensions uses to benchmark Work Programme performance is poor, and should be replaced with a one-year job outcome measure.
