PART C: TARGET GROUPS AND TARGETING

C.1    Who are the broad target groups for the                      People entering the labour market for the first time
       Measure/Sub-Measure                                          Unemployed
                                                                    Long-term unemployed
                                                                    Early school leavers
                                                                    Employed
                                                                    Other socially excluded groups (please speficy)




C.2    Can you give any further detail on the specific target group(s) for the Measure/Sub-measure (eg sub-groups within the
       broad target group(s) identified in question C.1)?




C.3    Why are target groups identified/what do you see as the rationale behind this targeting?




C.4    How defined are the criteria to establish if someone is in the target group?

       Very defined – we know immediately if someone is eligible
       Partly defined – we have good guidance but some judgement is needed
       Not well defined – much of the decision on eligibility is around judgement


C.5    In practice, is somebody‟s entry onto the Measure/Sub-measure (tick more than one if appropriate):

       Defined by criteria set down at national level
       Due to Agency/Unit Guidelines
       Due to a referral by another Agency
       Based on the practices/judgement of the people implementing the Measure/Sub-Measure


C.6    Given the target group, how is it decided which members of the target group actually participate in the Measure/Sub-
       measure?




C.7    Do people participate in the scheme that in general should not (eg are not part of the core target group or would probably
       gain employment even if they didn‟t partake in the scheme)?

                               Yes                           No                                      Don‟t know
      Please explain:




                                                              Page 4
C.8     Are there people (eg certain members of the target group or people outside the target group) who do not participate in the
        Measure/Sub-measure but you feel should?
                                Yes                         No                                     Don‟t know

       Please explain:




C.9     Given the target group, what specific methods does the Measure/Sub-measure use to reach people in this group?




C.10    From the perspective of the individual participant in the Measure/Sub-measure, describe the steps involved in hearing
        about, and becoming a participant in, the Measure/Sub-measure.

C.11    Of the total target group, approximately what proportion does the Measure/Sub-measure aim to reach? Where possible
        please differentiate between the broad target group (as per question C.1) and specific target group (as per question C.2)

                                                                 2000                   2001 (Estimate)
                            0 - 4%
                           5 - 9%
                           10 - 14%
                           15 - 19%

                           71 - 79%
                           80 - 89%
                           90 - 100%
                           Don‟t know

PART D: LEVEL OF PROVISION
The labour market context for the programme has continued to change rapidly since the NDP was drawn up (1999). For example, in
the two years to the December 2000/February 2001 quarter, the labour force grew by 7.6% to 1,775 thousand. Total employment
grew by some 10% over this period to reach 1,710 thousand. The unemployment rate fell by just over 2 percentage points to 3.7%
and the long-term unemployment rate fell to 1.2%.

D.1    Do you believe that the current planned level of provision under the Measure/Sub-Measure is appropriate given the needs
       of the target group?

                      Yes                      No                   Don‟t know

                   Please explain:




D.2    What impact do you think the labour market trends had on the need for the Measure/Sub-measure in 2000 and the first half
       of 2001?

                   Increased need
                   Reduced need
                   No impact on need


                   Please explain:




D.3    Do you feel the labour market trends in 2000 and the first half of 2001 had implications for the appropriate target groups for
       the Measure/Sub-measure, or the targeting in practice of people, over that period (eg did the needs of the target group
       change)?

                      Yes                      No                   Don‟t know


       Please explain:




D.4    Was the practical targeting of people under the Measure/Sub-measure actually adjusted in any way (officially or un-
       officially) to reflect these trends in 2000 and the first half of 2001?

                      Yes                      No                   Don‟t know


       Please explain:




D.5    Was the content and design of the Measure/Sub-measure changed in any way (officially or unofficially) to reflect these
       trends in 2000 and the first half of 2001?

                      Yes                      No                   Don‟t know


       Please explain:




                                                              Page 6
D.6   Did the labour market trends in 2000 and the first half of 2001 affect take-up of the Measure/Sub-measure?

                    Yes                     No                   Don‟t know


      Please explain:




D.7   There has been a slow down in economic growth and labour market performance since the second half of 2001, did this
      labour market trend begin to have any impact on the take-up, or any other aspect of the Measure/Sub-measure?

                    Yes                     No                   Don‟t know


      Please explain:




D.8   Do the labour market trends in the past two years have implications for any aspects of the Measure/Sub-measure, eg
      overall budget, size of target group, needs of target group, content and design of education/training/employment
      programme)?

            Budget was underestimated and needs to increase
            Budget was overestimated and can be decreased
            Budget is about right

      Please explain:




D.9   Will future labour market trends have implications for any aspects of the Measure/Sub-measure (eg overall budget, size of
      target group, needs of target group, content and design of education/training/employment programme)?

                    Yes                     No                   Don‟t know
