Youth Employment Support Scheme
The Youth Employment Support Scheme is targeted at young jobseekers who are long-term unemployed or who face barriers to employment, and aims to provide participants with the opportunity to learn basic work and social skills in a supportive environment while on a work placement.
The programme is available to jobseekers and other eligible applicants who are:
- aged between 18 and 24; and
- have been out of work and in receipt of a qualifying payment for at least 12 months: or
- if unemployed for less than 12 months, are considered by a DEASP case officer to face a significant barrier to work.
