It is worth noting that the work programme is due to end shortly

What is the Work Programme?

The Work Programme aims to get people claiming certain benefits into sustained work. There are several schemes around the UK run by different organisations for Jobcentre Plus. The organisations are paid by their results. The more people they help to find work, the more they are paid.

Organisations running the Work Programme have to offer a minimum level of service. However, they are free to set the rules of their own schemes based on local economic and employment conditions. This means the rules for qualifying to take part in the Work Programme can vary from area to area.

Who has to take part in the Work Programme?

You will have to take part in the Work Programme if you belong to any of the following groups of people:

* you are aged 18-24 and have claimed jobseeker's allowance for nine months
* you are aged 25 or over and have claimed jobseeker's allowance for 12 months
* you are seriously disadvantaged in the labour market, for example because a disability has made it hard to find work. When you qualify and whether you can choose to take part will depend on which area you live in and what your circumstances are
* you have recently claimed incapacity benefit, after claiming jobseeker's allowance for three months
* you are claiming income-related employment and support allowance, are in the work-related activity group, and are expected to be fit for work within twelve months.

I have only just discovered that Learn Direct is owned by LDC, the private equity arm of Lloyds Banking Group.

The ruthless circular efficiency of this scam is breathtaking.

Having blighted millions of lives they now wish to pick the bones of their own victims by further exploiting the meager benefits they are still entitled to.

It looks like this has been posted twice, in my ruthless efficiency in helping transfer posts to this forum. :oops:
