At, PMQs today, David Cameron claimed:
“Our work experience programme is seeing half of the young people taking part getting into work – that is the same result as the Future Jobs Fund and it cost 20 times less – that is the truth – our programme is good value for taxpayers’ money, is getting people into work.”
However, statistics released yesterday by the DWP showed how badly the Work Programme had failed – with stats released by the DWP on Friday showing how big a success the Future Jobs Fund was. The Work Programme is not, as Cameron claimed today, delivering “the same result” as the Future Jobs Fund.
