Document Abstract

Job brokerage in in-work progression programmes: learning from the Step Up pilot

Explores the learning from a pilot programme to support employment progression by low paid workers, drawing on the results of a roundtable with a range of representatives and stakeholders. Outlines the Step Up programme to test new approaches to supporting progression by low-paid workers in London, indicating that this report forms part of the third year evaluation of the programme, and describes the aims of the roundtable. Looks at the main elements of job brokerage for in-work progression programmes, the key challenges faced and tensions between job brokerage and employer relationships. Considers potential approaches to employer engagement: workforce development, pipeline approach and external job brokerage. Explores the implications for commissioners of adopting sector-based or place-based approaches to in-work progression support.
