According to the Department for Work and Pensions, more than half of the scheme's earliest participants have stopped receiving Jobseekers Allowance, while 19 per cent had spent at least six months in a row in work.
Mark Hoban, minister for employment, said: "The Work Programme is succeeding in getting people off benefits and into work. It's still early days but already thousands of lives are being transformed."
By the end of July this year, 31,000 people had remained in a job for several months.
Mr Hoban added that some providers had quickly come to terms with the new scheme, but stated that some are underperforming and it will not be tolerated, as getting the long-term unemployed back into work is the government's priority.
