Early impacts of work experience /

by Ainsworth, Paul | Department for Work and Pensions | Hillmore, Adam | Marlow, Simon | Prince, Stuart.

Publisher: London, U.K. Department for Work and Pensions 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2012. Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: Work experience (WE) was launched in January 2011 as one of the UK government's Get Britain Working Measures. The program is designed to help young people on Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA) gain an insight into the world of work and provide them with the practical experience they need to secure a job before they become eligible for the Work Program. Jobcentre Plus works with employers to offer young jobseekers the opportunity to overcome barriers to employment through offering them a WE placement usually lasting two to eight weeks, which can be extended for another four weeks. The decision to participate on WE is voluntary. This report describes a quantitative analysis of WE, providing estimates of: (1) the net impact of WE on the likelihood of young participants receiving an out of work benefit or training allowance during the first 21 weeks following the start of their placement; and (2) the net impact of WE on the likelihood of young participants being in employment during the first 21 weeks following the start of their placement. This report includes an introduction, data and sample definition, methodology, results in terms of impacts of work experience and sensitivity of impact estimates, and conclusions.Availability: (1)
