The DWP's evaluation and impact analysis of the Day One Support for Young People Trailblazer found that young people who completed the scheme were half as likely to be in paid employment compared to those who didn't complete it. What lessons will you draw from this in future work in this area?

The evaluation of the Day One Support project has provided useful insight into the types of interventions that have worked well and those less so.  These lessons will be considered by the GLA in the development of future employment provision particularly the 2014-2020 round of European Social Fund programmes.
