Restart : reflections on the British scheme of the 80s for the long term unemployed
Tindle, Elizabeth (1995) Restart : reflections on the British scheme of the 80s for the long term unemployed. In Hicks, Richard E., Creed, Peter, Patton, Wendy A., & Tomlinson, John (Eds.) Unemployment, Developments and Transitions. Australian Academic Press, Brisbane, pp. 253-261.
The chapter reflects on the first two years of the Restart Scheme introduced by the Manpower Services Commission for Long term unemployed people in the UK from a facilitator's perspective ten years later. It examines the actual weekly program for participants with some case examples from one of the pilot centres, Crawley College, West Sussex, an area of low unemployment. The observations suggested that even in a place where there are many job vacancies, there will be a 3-4% of the population who are unable to compete for jobs and participate in the work force unless sheltered workshops and specialized training initiatives are established.
