9780102930115: Welfare To Work: Tackling The Barriers To The Employment Of Older People Hc 1026, Session 2003-2004 (House of Commons Papers)

Of the 2.7 million people between 50 and the state pension age who are not working, it is estimated that between 700,000 and one million would like to work. The employment rate for older people has risen steadily since 1993, but there are significant ethnic and regional variations. This report examines the Government's employment programmes, such as New Deal 50 Plus, in the light of this problem and concludes: There should be better alignment between the work of Jobcentres and local Learning and Skills Councils in respect of improving employability. Performance measures should be developed, to encourage DWP and Jobcentre Plus staff to focus on the most difficult cases. Regional Development Agencies should set targets for the employment of disadvantaged groups, building on the work of the East Midlands Development Agency. The Department of Trade and Industry should consider whether it should continue funding for The Prime Initiative Ltd beyond the current funding period which ends in March 2006.
