Job Entry Targeted Support

Question for Department for Work and Pensions

UIN HL442, tabled on 20 May 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many people have taken part in the Job Entry: Targeted Support scheme since it was launched on 5 October 2020; and how many of those have returned to permanent employment.

Answered on

3 June 2021

Up to the end of April 2021 there have been 94,560 starts on the Job Entry: Targeted Support (JETS) scheme in England and Wales (launched 5 October 2020), and 3,800 starts on the scheme in Scotland (launched 25 January 2021).

So far there have been 12,665 job outcomes in England and Wales and 160 job outcomes in Scotland (a job outcome is defined as when an individual achieves £1000 cumulative earnings within eight months of starting). It should be noted that JETS provides support for up to six months and many people who have started on the scheme will not yet have had time to achieve a job outcome.
