The Government describes the scheme as an ‘innovative way to help young people into work and spur Britain’s economic revival’. It was officially launched on Wednesday.
The scheme is subsidised with the Government paying 100 per cent of the age-relevant National Minimum Wage, National Insurance and pension contributions provided young people aged 16-24 are given quality positions with a minimum 25 hours a week.
