Long-Term Unemployment and the"Employability Gap": Priorities for Renewing Britain's New Deal.
Lindsay, Colin
Journal of European Industrial Training, v26 n9 p411-19 2002
Interviews with 115 British job seekers explored the effectiveness of New Deal 25 Plus, a reformed government initiative for long-term unemployed. The program, especially one-to-one support, better addresses some aspects of the employability gap. However, to overcome long-term labor market detachment requires stronger commitment to training in real work environments and more flexible administration of unemployment benefits.
