Local employment partnerships (LEPs) are not a programme in which people participate; they are an agreement between employers and Jobcentre Plus to work together to enable employers to recruit in ways which give a fair chance to applicants from the most disadvantaged groups of jobless people. Information on the on-flow and origin, off-flow and destination, and stock figures for people participating in LEPs is thus not available.

The available remaining requested information has been placed in the Library.
