The Government provide a range of different employment and training schemes to help people of all ages and backgrounds find work.

Some schemes are compulsory for those who are claiming Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA), whilst others are voluntary. Not only does the Government offer advice and financial support, it also aims to make access to work easier by improving the pathways from Jobseeker's Allowance to full-time employment.

The schemes are grouped by the Mandatory Work Activity Scheme and the Employment, Skills and Enterprise Scheme with the objective to provide help with moving from benefits to work.

A variety of schemes exist, from those that help people find employment to those that try to provide opportunities for people to build on experience through apprenticeships and work experience placements.
