CBI RESPONDS TO DWP STATEMENT ON JSA WORK EXPERIENCE SCHEMES

CBI RESPONDS TO DWP STATEMENT ON JSA WORK EXPERIENCE SCHEMES

The CBI today responded to a Department for Work and Pensions statement on work experience schemes for Job Seekers Allowance (JSA) claimants.

Katja Hall, CBI Chief Policy Director, said:

“Work experience schemes for Job Seekers Allowance claimants deliver excellent outcomes in terms helping unemployed people to find permanent work, with around half of participants coming off benefits as a result.

“By allowing job seekers to keep their benefits during the work experience period, these programmes encourage people to gain essential workplace knowledge, which then makes them much more attractive to employers looking to fill permanent roles.”
