NO! The Government should be doing more to get young people into work

NO! The Government should be doing more to get young people into work

Almost 50% of jobseekers feel that the UK Government is not doing enough to get people back into work with the current planned investment over the next 3 years.

A recent survey conducted by TipTopJob.com, the specialist network of jobsites asked over 500 jobseekers about if they felt the UK Government was doing enough to help young people get into work. Exactly 43% responded saying “no” - this is nearly half of the respondents.

So, what exactly are the Government planning to do with this investment over the next 3 years? The Government are providing funding for more Apprenticeships and funding work placements. They are planning to provide early access Work Programme places to 18 year olds. They are increasing the capacity of the Jobcentre Plus to support 16 and 17 year olds into work and there is a new &pound10m/year Innovation Fund for organisations to help the disadvantaged young. The Government are also planning to provide young people vocational training to provide the skills needed to compete in the economy. Finally, new plans for traineeships aimed at 16-24 year olds could be in place by September 2013 to be used as a stepping stone to an apprenticeship or job.
