Work & Pensions Committee and the Youth Contract

The Work and Pensions Committee has launched an inquiry into the Government's approach to the Youth Contract. It aims to look at lessons learned from other approaches, such as the Future Jobs Fund and assess the merits of job subsidies, apprenticeships and work experience placements, as well as how the Youth Contract will be coordinated between departments, local authorities, agencies and employment services providers.

Interested parties are being asked to submit their views to the Committee by 13 April on:

  • The reasons for young people’s comparative disadvantage in the labour market, including skills, qualifications, careers advice and employer attitudes 
  • The design of the Youth Contract, including the role of JCP, adequeacy of the response, targeting of provision, whether the outcomes will be what we are looking for
  • Lessons from the Future Jobs Fund
  • How Youth Contract wage subsidies will operate within the Work Programme and the cost effectiveness of this
  • How the Youth Contract will be coordinated between Government departments, local authorities and agencies

So if you're an expert in any of the above, click here for more details and to find out how to submit your views.
