Work Programme Evaluation March 2013

The report is authored by researchers at Inclusion, part of a consortium of research organisations evaluating the Work Programme led by the Institute for Employment Studies and including GfK NOP, the National Institute for Economic and Social Research and the Social Policy Research Unit at York University. The first official Work Programme evaluation report focussed on programme delivery in the period shortly after implementation. This second report provides the context within which the services described in the first report were delivered and seeks to provide early insights on why services were delivered in that way.
