Work & Pensions Committee Work Programme report

  • There is a risk that providers of the Government’s new Work Programme might focus their attention on jobseekers who are easier to place in work, at the expense of those who face greater challenges to finding jobs, according to a report published today (8 May 2011) by the Work and Pensions Select Committee.
  • The report, Work Programme: providers and contracting arrangements, also warns that the £5 billion Work Programme presents significant financial risks for the Government and its service providers.
  • The Report welcomes many of the Work Programme’s design principles, which continue the direction of the previous Government’s employment programmes, particularly the Flexible New Deal.
