star this property answer text <p>Work Choice was designed to help individuals whose needs cannot be met through other DWP employment programmes and who need more specialised support to find employment or to keep a job once they have started work. Work Choice referrals have now ended in all parts of England and Wales, and service delivery will end by 31 March 2019. The Work &amp; Health Programme, which rolled out in England and Wales between November 2017 and March 2018, builds on lessons learnt from both Work Choice and the Work Programme.</p><p> </p><p>Work Choice performance data allows us to monitor both short job outcomes (employment lasting at least 13 weeks) and sustained job outcomes (employment lasting at least 26 weeks) where the tailored support assists participants in achieving these. Work Choice official statistics are published here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/work-choice-referrals-starts-and-job-outcomes-to-june-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/work-choice-referrals-starts-and-job-outcomes-to-june-2018</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Since 25<sup>th</sup> October 2015, Work Choice participants could voluntarily declare to their Work Coach that they had an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), to allow providers to recognise their support requirements. A declaration of autism was recorded separately from individuals’ primary health condition. As these declarations are voluntary, we cannot be sure that they account for all Work Choice participants with ASD.</p><p> </p><p>For participants who have declared this information, the below data table shows the number of starts per year and the proportion of these starts that have since achieved a short job outcome (employment lasting at least 13 weeks) and a sustained job outcome (employment lasting at least 26 weeks). These data are a subset of the official Work Choice statistics.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td colspan="5"><p>Individuals who declared autism</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>Number of starts</p></td><td colspan="2"><p>Of which have achieved a short job outcome</p></td><td colspan="2"><p>Of which have achieved a sustained job outcome</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Latest year available:</strong></p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Jul-17 to Jun-18 (for starts)</p></td><td><p>670</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Jul-16 to Jun-17 (for short job outcomes)</p></td><td><p>1,120</p></td><td><p>430</p></td><td><p>38%</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Jul-15 to Jun-16 (for sustained)</p></td><td><p>530</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>140</p></td><td><p>26%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> </strong></p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Financial years:</strong></p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015/16 (Nov to Mar)</p></td><td><p>290</p></td><td><p>120</p></td><td><p>44%</p></td><td><p>80</p></td><td><p>27%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016/17</p></td><td><p>1,090</p></td><td><p>420</p></td><td><p>38%</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017/18</p></td><td><p>940</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>Source: Provider Referrals and Payments system (PRaP)</p><p> </p><p>Notes:</p><p>- Work Choice performance data for a particular cohort of starts are only comparable once we have given sufficient time from the end of that period for all of the starts to have received the tailored support from the programme and to have achieved the job outcomes.

Therefore, short job outcome rates are not available for the July 2015 to June 2016 cohort and for the 2015/16 financial year they are only available from November 2015 to March 2016.</p><p> </p><p>- Figures are rounded to the nearest ten.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Specialist Employability Support (SES) is a pan-disability employment programme providing specialist personalised employment support for around 1,700 participants with complex barriers to employment, including Autism Spectrum Disorders, each year. Individuals with autism may request that specific referral opportunities are used for their referral to SES, to allow providers to recognise their support requirements.</p><p> </p><p>The Government confirmed in ‘Improving Lives, The Future of Work, Health and Disability’, published in December 2017, that it is currently exploring the best policy options for continuing to support those with greatest needs and most complex situations, once the SES contracts come to an end.</p><p> </p><p>We have not made any formal assessment of SES programme including on the employment outcomes of autistic people but we continue to gather information and evidence including lessons learnt for developing our future support.</p><p> </p><p>DWP has recently completed negotiations with SES providers to extend referrals to the programme to end 2019 to ensure continuous provision for this customer group whilst future support is put in place.</p><p> </p><p>The number of working age disabled people in employment in the UK reached around 3.9 million in Q3 2018.
