The Department for Work and Pensions will today release statistics on the Work Programme; a government initiative aimed at getting the unemployed back into work. After a difficult start in a tough economic climate, the scheme now seems to be performing well. However, with an election approaching and current work Work Programme contracts running out in 2016, the next stage of reform is on the agenda. Will Tanner provides ideas on the future of employment support and writes that future reform must start with the payment and performance model.
