Refugee Employment Programme (REP)

The New Plan for Immigration set out the Government's intentions to strengthen the asylum system migration system with clear eligibility and routes to the UK. The Nationality and Borders Act UK provides the legislative framework for the NPI. As part of the NPI an Enhanced Integration Programme was announced and this is delivered through the Refugee Employability Programme, which aims to provide employment and language support to refugees to improve their chances in the UK labour market. In partnership with Ipsos, Rand and Renaisi, IES is providing expert advice to this important programme.
