This information describes the main government employment schemes. Most schemes are provided through Jobcentre Plus offices, where you can get more details. Some employment schemes are compulsory for people claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance, while others are voluntary. You can also find information here about employment schemes for the self-employed, training schemes, and other types of help on offer.

The organisation that runs the Work Programme must have a complaints procedure and tell you what it is. If you make a complaint and the organisation can't sort it out, you can refer your complaint to the Independent Case Examiner. They deal with unresolved complaints on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions.
UFI promotes training among businesses and individuals in sectors where there is a shortage of skills. If you're 69 or older and have low literacy or numeracy it can get you into training to improve those skills.
Unfortunately, not all financial schemes look the same, which makes it hard to spot one when you're victimized. In true Darwinian style, clever scammers are able to thrive by consistently adapting and evolving their schemes to come up with new ways to con others out of their life savings. The Ponzi scheme is just one type of con. And, although it's based on a classic formula, the idea can be applied in countless ways to deceive unsuspecting victims.
Under the Employment on Trial scheme you can try out a job without risking losing benefit if you leave. You'll need to leave the job voluntarily, not lose it because of your misconduct. If you refuse to take a suitable job, your Jobseeker’s Allowance may be affected.
You might get a benefit sanction if you refuse to take part in a scheme, or leave one before finishing it. A sanction means Jobcentre Plus will stop or reduce your Jobseeker's Allowance for a time.
If your benefit is stopped or cut, tell Jobcentre Plus if you have a good reason for what happened. Tell them as soon as you can - ideally within 5 days. You may also be able to challenge the decision.
If you are a customer of Jobcentre Plus, you may be able to get a payment from the Flexible Support Fund to cover any expenses you run up while taking up work or training. However, it's up to your local Jobcentre Plus to decide whether it will meet these costs.
The scheme is intended to provide work or work-related activity for up to 85 hours a week over 9 weeks. To be on the scheme, you have to be available for and actively looking for work, and you have to enter into a jobseeker's agreement.
