The New Deal for Young Unemployed People: A Summary of Progress

Atkinson J | Research Report ESR13 | Employment Service | Jan 1999

The New Deal for young unemployed people was a key element in the Government's Welfare to Work strategy. It aimed to help young people who had been unemployed and claiming Jobseeker's Allowance for six months or more to find work and to improve their longer term employability.

This report summarises the development of the programme in November 1998, eight months after its national roll-out. To do so, it draws on a wide range of information from both the programme administrative systems set up by the Employment Service to monitor and manage it, and from the early results of the evaluation research which has been set in train.
