Plan for Jobs and employment support


Plan for Jobs and Employment Support

The Committee is looking at the effectiveness of Government support to get people into employment, including disadvantaged groups such as those in low-paid jobs and young people.

The Committee will be looking to find out:

  • What is driving increases in economic inactivity - for example amongst people with health conditions and older people?
  • What has been the impact of the Way to Work campaign?
  • How could DWP work more effectively with employers to ensure that people coming through Jobcentre Plus are well-equipped to fill vacancies?
  • Are there any international examples of successful employment support schemes that DWP could learn from?
  • Should the Government provide employment support to people who are not on benefits? If so, how could that support best be provided?

Read the call for evidence to find out more, and tell us your views.

The Committee has previously looked at employment support as part of its inquiry into DWP’s response to the coronavirus report, and more recently in its inquiries into DWP’s Preparations for changes in the world of work and the Disability Employment Gap.

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Friday 16 September 2022.
