The Youth Contract will provide more intensive support for all 18 to 24-year-olds including additional adviser time and weekly signing requirements. It will make available extra work experience and sector-based work academy places, including an offer of a work experience place for every unemployed 18 to 24-year-old who wants one, before they enter the Work programme. Work experience is delivered through local mechanisms based on demand and need. It forms just part of a range of flexible measures which the Jobcentre Plus district manager can put in place to address the specific needs and requirements of unemployed young people in Peterborough.
A new wage incentive scheme, delivered through the Work Programme, will make it easier for employers to take on young people aged 18 to 24. We are talking to providers and employers about the best way of delivering this new scheme and will make further information available to employers and others over the coming weeks as the design detail progresses.
