Department for Education and Employment statistics show the last three months' recruitment on YT schemes is down 17 per cent. However, 64 per cent of people leaving YT schemes got a job within six months, up from 59 per cent a year ago.

The number starting Training for Work schemes also rose slightly, but the number of trainees fell by more than half in the year to March.
