Transition to Work Evaluation

Transition to Work provides up to 12 months intensive pre-employment support for young people at risk of long-term unemployment. A voluntary, demand-driven service and an integral component of the Youth Employment Strategy, Transition to Work focuses on practical support and work experience to build the skills, confidence and work readiness of early school leavers and young people who have experienced difficulty transitioning from education to employment.
