We are clerically collecting Management Information on outcomes of programme participants from January 2019 onwards. This is the first month in which we will have fully rolled out the programme across the entire country. The data capture will include what provision a participant has been referred to and their attendance on different elements of the programme. We will have the ability, via the use of the RTI information that we hold, to look at whether individuals go into work and how much they earn. We have no plans to backdate this data capture to the start of the Youth Obligation Support Programme.
