It was announced this week by the Department for Work and Pensions that jobseekers will be given the chance to learn new skills to improve their prospects, but will find their benefits are stopped if they refuse the opportunity.
The organisation revealed that if a lack of relevant qualifications is a major obstacle, citizens will be given support in the form of compulsory training.
Commenting on the scheme, employment minister Chris Grayling explained: "People who are looking for work but are put at a disadvantage by their lack of skills will be given the training they need to improve their prospects of getting a job."
He went on to state, however, that those looking for employment will have to make considerable effort themselves.
This follows the news that a initiative from the Mayor's Fund for London is set to help 2,000 young people from the capital's most deprived areas into work.
