Has the new deal in Scotland helped young people out on unemployment and into jobs?
Has the new deal in Scotland helped young people out on unemployment and into jobs?
The New Deal for Young People (NDYP) in Scotland has significantly increased outflows from long-term unemployment for both young men and young women. This increase is primarily the result of young people leaving unemployment during the Gateway stage of NDYP and of the take-up of NDYP options. We find no evidence of any detrimental effect of the NDYP on those not participating in the programme. The magnitude of the overall NDYP effect on outflows is larger for females than for males in Scotland, and larger for both genders than the UK average suggested by previous studies. In other words, the NDYP in Scotland appears to have been more effective in helping the young unemployed out of unemployment than for some other parts of the UK, particularly for young women.

Abstract

The New Deal for Young People (NDYP) in Scotland has significantly increased outflows from long-term unemployment for both young men and young women. This increase is primarily the result of young people leaving unemployment during the Gateway stage of NDYP and of the take-up of NDYP options. We find no evidence of any detrimental effect of the NDYP on those not participating in the programme. The magnitude of the overall NDYP effect on outflows is larger for females than for males in Scotland, and larger for both genders than the UK average suggested by previous studies. In other words, the NDYP in Scotland appears to have been more effective in helping the young unemployed out of unemployment than for some other parts of the UK, particularly for young women.
