star this property answer text <p>Over 3 million more people are in work, and unemployment is lower in all regions and nations of the UK than in 2010. Youth unemployment has almost halved in this time, and there has been an increase in female and older worker employment. However, DWP, along with other departments and agencies continues to focus on the labour market and its challenges. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy published the ‘Industrial Strategy: building a Britain fit for the future’ white paper in November 2017. This sets out a plan for how local strategies can work together to increase local opportunities.</p><p> </p><p>Jobcentre staff play an important role by offering advice and support to help jobseekers gain the relevant skills required to be able to take up jobs that are available in their communities. Roll-out of Universal Credit Full Service was completed earlier this month and across the country and gives our work coaches the flexibility to offer tailored support to claimants.</p><p> </p><p>Government also provides The National Careers Service and works with local partners to provide opportunities for people. The range of support available may include:</p><p> </p><ul><li>Connecting people to jobs in the labour market</li><li>Help with job search, including CV writing, interview skills, where to find jobs and how to apply for them</li><li>Help to identify transferable skills and skills gaps (linked to the local labour market)</li><li>Training to update skills, learn new ones and gain industry recognised certification that will improve employability</li><li>Help to overcome barriers to attending training or securing a job</li><li>For large redundancies, DWP may also provide on-site services such as presentations to those affected</li><li>Jobs fairs and job clubs where appropriate</li></ul><p><strong></strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>Universal Credit, which is replacing six legacy benefits, provides a single earnings taper rate to ensure claimants are better off working and working more. DWP’s recently published Universal Credit Full Service Survey found an increase in earnings for those in work and on Universal Credit by an average of £600 per year. Additionally, our Universal Credit employment impact analysis (published in September 2017) found that people on Universal Credit are four percentage points more likely to have been in work than JSA claimants</p><p> </p><p>At Autumn Budget 2018, we recently announced a £1000 increase in work allowances from April 2019, which will provide a £630 boost for households with children, and for people with disabilities.</p><p> </p><p>To support the transition to Universal Credit for all self-employed people, the Autumn Budget also announced we will be extending the 12-month grace period (the period before the Minimum Income Floor applies) to all gainfully self-employed people, giving claimants time to grow their businesses.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Work is the best route out of poverty and the government is ensuring that work always pays. Increases in the National Living Wage (NLW) have handed full-time minimum wage workers a pay rise of over £2,000 since the introduction of the NLW, and changes to the personal allowance will see 1.2m individuals taken out of income tax altogether by 2018-19 (compared to 2015-16).</p><p> </p><p>We have also made sure the welfare system is fairer and rewards work. Universal Credit (UC) replaces six benefits with one and applies a single taper to claimants’ benefit awards, removing the poor incentives of the old system to ensure that it always pays more to be in work than out of work.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s childcare offer is also ensuring parents are supported into work. UC provides support for childcare costs worth up to £1108 per month for two or more children. Eligible working families in England are also entitled to 30 hours free childcare for three and four-year olds, worth up to £5000 per year. A lone parent only has to earn around £6,500 a year to be able to access this entitlement and a couple just over £13,000, making work pay for parents.</p>
