The programme supports our Tackling Poverty agenda and aims to provide 5,000 training and employment opportunities for people living in households where no-one is in work.

Growth and sustainable jobs are at the heart of the Programme for Government and jobs and the economy are the Welsh Government's overriding priorities.

Employment offers a high level of protection against poverty for individuals and families. There is a strong correlation between qualifications and skills, employment and earnings.

Key areas supporting this include:

  • Education and Skills
  • Equality and Diversity
  • Environment and Countryside
  • Transport
  • Communities First
