The UK Government says there has been "a really big improvement in performance" from its Work Programme, but Employment Minister Esther McVey will meet her counterpart at the Welsh Government soon, to "ensure jobseekers in Wales have access to the same range of help available to those in England."
– Esther McVey MP, Minister for Employment
There has been a really big improvement in performance from when the Work Programme began in 2011 and we are committed to making sure providers in Wales continue to improve the service they give to jobseekers.
Providers get paid on the results they achieve, so it's in everyone's interest to help as many people into work as possible.
I will soon be meeting with Ken Skates, Deputy Minister for Skills and Technology from the Welsh Government - I want us to work together to ensure jobseekers in Wales have access to the same range of help available to those in England.
