* Early Impacts of Work Experience is a peer-reviewed assessment of the Government’s Work Experience programme, a programme that received a great deal of criticism at the start of this year.

* Its results suggest that Work Experience has been strikingly successful in helping its participants leave benefits and move into employment.

* This briefing clearly presents these results, and in its Comment section discusses whether they can be taken as evidence that the Government’s controversial measures to tackle unemployment are proving their critics wrong.
