If claimants cannot make or manage their claim on-line, they can receive face to face support through their local jobcentre or assistance through our Freephone telephone number. Once the claim is made, claimants who require agencies to act on their behalf can provide explicit consent.</p><p>In our response to the Social Security Advisory Committee in November 2018 in respect of the managed migration regulations, we have agreed to explore options for improving the process of explicit consent in collaboration with the committee.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Youth unemployment has fallen by over 40% since 2010. Around 3.0 million young people have left full-time education and have successfully found work, with the employment rate for this group at 74.9%, up by 7.5 percentage points since 2010.</p><p>The Youth Obligation Support Programme was introduced in April 2017 to provide intensive support for 18-21 year olds making a new claim to Universal Credit. This programme starts with an intensive activity period of workshops and interventions that encourages 18-21 year olds to think more broadly about their skills and job goals, helps them identify any training they need, and supports them to improve their job search, job application and interview skills.</p><p>We also believe that early intervention is particularly important, which is why we have introduced Jobcentre Plus Support for Schools, which was trialled in 10 districts starting in February 2016 and rolled out nationally in England only from November 2016. It helps young people make a smooth and effective transition from school to work, training or further study. This support includes advice on the local labour market, ‘soft skills’ employers expect such as teamworking and resilience, job search skills such as CV writing and interview techniques, and the promotion of vocational routes into employment</p>

star this property answer text <p>The improved work incentives in Universal Credit result not just from work allowances, but also from the lower taper rates, the fact that a claimant does not need to claim in three places, and that data on earnings is received every month, meaning that a claimant’s Universal Credit adjusts automatically to their earnings. We expect to provide an updated assessment of the labour supply effects of Universal Credit as part of the full business case later in 2018.</p> more like this
