Operational Vision: New Deal for 18-24 Year Old Unemployed Young People.
Employment Dept., London (England).
Great Britain's New Deal is designed to provide unemployed individuals between the ages of 18 and 24 years with an array of counseling and guidance services called the Gateway. It will include access to independent career advice and a specialist assigned to help them overcome their particular barriers to employment. Key elements of the Gateway are as follows: early, intensive assistance to help job-ready unemployed young people into nonsubsidized jobs; additional training opportunities for individuals who are not ready for immediate employment (work with a voluntary sector organization, work with the Environmental Task Force, or full-time education and training); emphasis on placing clients into long-term employment; local community ownership and delivery of New Deal services in partnership with Great Britain's Employment Service (ES); and continued support for clients after they leave the New Deal. This document, which is designed to explain the New Deal's operational vision to ES employees, explains the following: the New Deal's aims, key elements, and delivery system; differences between the New Deal and existing services for disadvantaged youth; impacts of the New Deal on the ES; and the stages of the New Deal's operation.
