Welsh job scheme creates 13,000 opportunities since 2012

Tue, 3 Jun 2014
The number of job opportunities available to young people through a jobs scheme is higher than expected after its target was reached a year early, the Welsh government said yesterday.

Jobs Growth Wales, a programme that caters for young people that are job-ready but have had difficulty securing employment, aims to create 4,000 temporary job opportunities a year but latest figures show this target has already been beaten, a year early.

The scheme has created more than 13,000 opportunities for 16-24-year-olds since it was launched in 2012.

The latest figures from the programme show that 82% of young people in the private sector have progressed into sustained employment, an apprenticeship or further learning upon completing their six-month job opportunities.
