Work experience: a quantitative impact assessment

Details

Work experience helps young unemployed people gain skills through a 2 to 8 week placement with a local employer.

This research explores how taking part in work experience affects the time people spend on benefit and in work afterwards.

The research builds on findings from an analysis on the early impacts of the work experience programme published in 2012.
