On 27 November the Department for Work and Pensions will release figures on how well Work Programme Providers have been performing since the scheme launched in June 2011.
This short background briefing covers:
- What the official Work Programme statistics will show, and how to interpret them;
- What the SMF and others have found in analysis of likely Work Programme performance; and
- What solutions there may be if the figures indicate that the scheme is not going to plan.
