The data tables provide detailed breakdowns and historical data.
Work experience and sector-based work academies for 18 to 24 year olds have been funded by the Youth Offer since April 2015. Before this they were funded by the Youth Contract or Get Britain Working.
Work experience helps young people aged 18 to 24 with little or no work experience gain the experience they need to secure a job.
Sector-based work academies offer pre-employment training, work experience placements and a guaranteed job interview for recipients of some of DWP’s main benefits.
