The Government is investing £30 billion in our Plan for Jobs to promote, create and sustain employment opportunities. So that nobody is left without hope as we build back better.
We are launching JETS - Job Entry Targeted Support. This is backed by £238 million and will support people who have lost their jobs due to COVID.
The £2 billion kickstart scheme will provide incentives for businesses to take on my apprentices and trainees. Expanding the range of opportunities available to young people. We are also recruiting 13,500 more work coaches - bringing the total number up 27,000 this year.
The Lifetime Skills Guarantee will mean that adults in England without A-Levels or equivalent will have the opportunity to take up free, fully-funded college courses. So that we have the skills we need to thrive in the 21st-century world.
This is all part of the £200 billion support package since the start of the Pandemic. This unprecedented support has protected millions of livelihoods and businesses.
