Post Program Monitoring Surveys – Labour Force Survey

The Department of Employment and Workplace Relations monitors outcomes for employment services participants through Post-Program Monitoring (PPM) surveys.

The Labour Force Survey provides information on the employment and education status of participants in three Workforce Australia employment programs – Workforce Australia Online, Workforce Australia Services and Transition to Work (TtW). Participants who were in (caseload) or have exited (exits) any of the three programs in the reference period can receive the survey.

The survey is conducted on a monthly basis. Results are calculated for a 12-month period and updated quarterly.

Note, these results relate to outcomes for participants who were on the caseload at the end of any month or exited their Workforce Australia employment service program any time between 4 July 2022 and 30 June 2023.
