The 18- 21-year-olds will receive an initial three-week intensive course of practising job applications and interviews, which will be regularly reviewed by a dedicated job coach.

The Guardian reports that the plans are set to be in place by April 2017 as part of the ‘earn or learn’ taskforce.

So today we’re asking, Do you think unemployed young people should be sent to work boot camps?
