Work Programme Evaluation: the participant experience report

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This report brings together and summarises the key evidence available from the different strands of the Work Programme evaluation relating to the experience of participants. In particular, it presents analyses from two waves of a large scale longitudinal survey of participants and a multi-wave (partly cross-section, partly longitudinal) programme of in-depth qualitative fieldwork with participants. The evaluation tracks the Work Programme over several years from its launch in 2011.
