There are very different types of schemes on the YTS and young people react differently to varied forms of discipline, pedagogy and off-the-job training methods.
Advice about schemes, rather than jobs, has become the norm. Earlier, I argued that many working-class schoolleavers became acutely aware that their chances of obtaining employment were slim. For some, this realisation began in school: Mick: Everyone was sayin', everyone didn't think we'd get a From School to Schemes 39 job. Everyone thought we'd go straight on the dole ...
