Youth Contract
  • New support builds extensively on the support already available allowing for swift implementation
  • Majority of Youth Contract support will be available from April 2012
  • New elements of support include:
    • Wage Incentives - Available to employers recruiting young people through the Work Programme
    • Additional support for 16 and 17 year olds – flexible programme of support delivered on a payment by results basis
  • These measures are being designed in partnership with key stakeholders including a broad range of employers and providers to ensure that they are effective
  • Ministers are meeting voluntary sector employers on the 8th of February

  • 160,000 wage incentives worth up to £2,275 available over 3 years
  • Available to employers from the private, voluntary and community sectors who recruit 18 – 24 year olds from the Work Programme
  • Ongoing engagement with a range of employers, representative bodies and stakeholders to inform design of scheme
  • Aim to ensure scheme is simple, efficient and easy to engage with to attract a wide range of employers, including smaller organisations and voluntary sector employers

impact on youth unemployment
Impact on Youth Unemployment
  • The Youth Contract will build on the wide range of support already available to claimants through Jobcentre Plus
  • This will ensure that every unemployed young person in need of support will have access to it
  • The Youth Contract will help target support more effectively and this, alongside the existing support, will help young people find real jobs
  • The focus will be on equipping young people with the skills and experience they need to succeed in the longer term
